A note on characteristic classes

Jianwei Zhou (2006)

Czechoslovak Mathematical Journal

This paper studies the relationship between the sections and the Chern or Pontrjagin classes of a vector bundle by the theory of connection. Our results are natural generalizations of the Gauss-Bonnet Theorem.

A note on the cohomology ring of the oriented Grassmann manifolds G ˜ n , 4

Tomáš Rusin (2019)

Archivum Mathematicum

We use known results on the characteristic rank of the canonical 4 –plane bundle over the oriented Grassmann manifold G ˜ n , 4 to compute the generators of the 2 –cohomology groups H j ( G ˜ n , 4 ) for n = 8 , 9 , 10 , 11 . Drawing from the similarities of these examples with the general description of the cohomology rings of G ˜ n , 3 we conjecture some predictions.

Correction for the paper “ S 3 -bundles and exotic actions”

T. E. Barros (2001)

Bulletin de la Société Mathématique de France

In [R] explicit representatives for S 3 -principal bundles over S 7 are constructed, based on these constructions explicit free S 3 -actions on the total spaces are described, with quotients exotic 7 -spheres. To describe these actions a classification formula for the bundles is used. This formula is not correct. In Theorem 1 below, we correct the classification formula and in Theorem 2 we exhibit the correct indices of the exotic 7 -spheres that occur as quotients of the free S 3 -actions described above.
