The contact number of a pseudo-Euclidean submanifold [Article]
(Mathematical Society of the Republic of China, 2008-10)
In this paper we define the contact number of a pseudo-Riemannian submanifold into the pseudo-Euclidean space, and prove that this contact number is closely related to the notion of pseudo-isotropic submanifold. We give ...
Isotropic submanifolds of pseudo-Riemannian spaces [Article]
The family of all the submanifolds of a given Riemannian or pseudo-Riemannian manifold is large enough to classify them into some interesting subfamilies such as minimal (maximal), totally geodesic, Einstein, etc. Most of ...
Nullification functors and the homotopy type of the classifying space for proper bundles [Article]
(Mathematical Sciences Publishers, 2005-09)
Let G be a discrete group for which the classifying space for proper G-actions is finite-dimensional. We find a space W such that for any such G, the classifying space BG for proper G-bundles has the homotopy type of the ...
Nullification and cellularization of classifying spaces of finite groups [Article]
(American Mathematical Society, 2007-04)
In this note we discuss the effect of the BZ/p-nullification PBZ/p and the BZ/p-cellularization CWBZ/p over classifying spaces of finite groups, and we relate them with the corresponding functors with respect to Moore ...
Minimal covers of open manifolds with half-spaces and the proper L-S category of product spaces [Article]
(Belgian Mathematical Society, 2002-09)
Classical results about the Lusternik-Schnirelmann category of product spaces have their analogues in the category of proper maps. By comparing the proper Lusternik-Schnirelmann category of an open manifold X with ...
