On Determinant Line Bundles
Determinant line bundles entered differential geometry in a remarkable paper of Quillen [Q]. He attached a holomorphic line bundle L to a particular family of Cauchy-Riemann operators over a Riemann

Inside and Outside Manifolds
Introduction. The classification theory of manifolds has evolved quite far. One theory fixes the homeomorphism or diffeomorphism type of a manifold in terms of the homotopy type and certain geometric
SURGERY WITH FINITE FUNDAMENTAL GROUP
The relationship between the topology of manifolds and homotopy theory has been analysed by surgery [1, 18, 28, 31]. However, the effectiveness of this analysis depends on being able to compute
Linking forms and stabilization for diffeomorphism groups of odd dimensional manifolds, part 1
Let $n \geq 2$. We prove a homological stability theorem for the diffeomorphism groups of $(4n+1)$-dimensional manifolds, with respect to forming the connected sum with $(2n-1)$-connected,
A Poincaré-Hopf type theorem for the de Rham invariant
The Poincaré-Hopf theorem relates the Euler-characteristic of a manifold to the local behavior of a generic vector-field on the manifold in a neighborhood of its zeroes. As a corollary of this, by
Homotopy theoretic consequences of N. Levitt’s obstruction theory to transversality for spherical fibrations
The main goal of this paper is a detailed analysis of the problem of imposing a topological bundle structure on a spherical fibre space over a simply connected base. The method involves a careful
