Isometric C-Immersions

Part of the Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebiete book series (MATHE3, volume 9)


The theory of topological sheaves (see 2.2) and the implicit function theorem (see 2.3) provide a general framework for the isometric immersion problem which consists of the construction and classification of isometric C -maps f: (V, g) → (W, h), for given forms g on V and h on W (compare 2.4.9). However, the direct application of 2.2 and 2.3 does not lead to geometrically significant results unless specific geometrical features of the forms in question are taken into account.
