Almost invariant submanifolds for compact group actions

Alan Weinstein (2000)

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

We define a C 1 distance between submanifolds of a riemannian manifold M and show that, if a compact submanifold N is not moved too much under the isometric action of a compact group G , there is a G -invariant submanifold C 1 -close to N . The proof involves a procedure of averaging nearby submanifolds of riemannian manifolds in a symmetric way. The procedure combines averaging techniques of Cartan, Grove/Karcher, and de la Harpe/Karoubi with Whitney’s idea of realizing submanifolds as zeros of sections...

Classes caractéristiques réelles de certains G-fibrés vectorials et résidus.

This work is a contribution to study residues of real characteristic classes of vector bundles on which act compact Lie groups. By using the Cech-De Rham complex, the realisation of the usual Thom isomorphism permites us to illustrate localisation techniques of some topological invariants.
