The major matters of the Siegen Topology Symposium are mirrored during this selection of sixteen study and expository papers. They focus on differential topology and, extra particularly, round linking phenomena in three, four and better dimensions, tangent fields, immersions and different vector package deal morphisms. Manifold different types, K-theory and crew activities also are discussed.

Tm )) t1 ◦ · · · ◦ Fltn )(v is a diffeomorphism from a neighborhood of 0 in Rm onto a neighborhood of x in M . Let (U, u) be the chart given by f −1 , suitably restricted. We have Xn 1 y ∈ L ⇐⇒ (FlX t1 ◦ · · · ◦ Fltn )(y) ∈ L for all y and all t1 , . . , tn for which both expressions make sense. So we have f (t1 , . . , tm ) ∈ L ⇐⇒ f (0, . . , 0, tn+1 , . . , tm ) ∈ L, and consequently L ∩ U is the disjoint union of connected sets of the form {y ∈ U : (un+1 (y), . . , um (y)) = constant}.

Aut(E) ∩ XE spans E. Draft from April 18, 2007 Peter W. Michor, 32 Chapter I. 25 Proof. (1) =⇒ (2). Let X ∈ XE and let L be the leaf through x ∈ M , with i∗ X i : L → M the inclusion. TF li∗ X (−t,x) L = EF lX (−t,x) . ∗ This implies that (FlX t ) Y ∈ XE for any Y ∈ XE . (2) =⇒ (4). In fact (2) says that XE ⊂ aut(E). ∗ (4) =⇒ (3). We can choose W = aut(E) ∩ XE : for X, Y ∈ W we have (FlX t ) Y ∈ XE ; so W ⊂ S(W) ⊂ XE and E is spanned by W. (3) =⇒ (1). We have to show that each point x ∈ M is contained in some integral submanifold for the distribution E.

Lie Groups I 45 Proof. Let first ϕ = α : (R, +) → G be a continuous one parameter subgroup. , t1 x1 + t2 x2 ∈ U for all |ti | ≤ 1 and xi ∈ U ) open neighborhood of 0 in g such that exp ↾ 2U is a diffeomorphism, for some ε > 0. Put β := (exp ↾ 2U )−1 ◦ α : (−ε, ε) → g. Then for |t| < 2ε we have exp(2β(t)) = exp(β(t))2 = α(t)2 = α(2t) = exp(β(2t)), so 2β(t) = β(2t); thus β( 2s ) = 12 β(s) for |s| < ε. So we have α( 2s ) = exp(β( 2s )) = exp( 12 β(s)) for all |s| < ε and by recursion we get α( 2sn ) = exp( 21n β(s)) for n ∈ N and in turn α( 2kn s) = α( 2sn )k = exp( 21n β(s))k = exp( 2kn β(s)) for k ∈ Z.
