Course description and aims

The aim of this course is the same as the one of [MTH. B301 : Geometry I]: it is to familiarize the students with basic notions and properties on differentiable manifolds.
The contents of this course is as follows: differentials of maps, regular values, critical points, inverse function theorem, Sard's theorem, immersions and embeddings, submanifold, partition of unity, vector fileds. Each lecture will be accompanied by a problem solving class. This course is a continuation of [Geometry I] in the first quarter and will be succeeded by [MTH. B331 : Geometry Ⅲ] in the third quater.

Student learning outcomes

Students are expected to
・understand the definition of defferentials of maps between manifolds.
・know more than 3 examples of submanifolds.
・be able to use ``Partition of unity''.
・understand the definitions of brackets of vector fields and integral curves of vector fields.

Keywords

Differential of a map, regular value, critical point, inverse function theorem, Sard's theorem, immersion and embedding, Whitney's embedding theorem, partition of unity, vector field, bracket, integral curve, 1-parameter group of transformations

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
