Question: When is a homology class represented by a submanifold?
Chirasree Chatterjee will present why the set of Equation (7) is a basis for the (k+m)-cohomology modulo 2 of MO(k) when m <= k.
This cohomological algebra
is the most technical and hardest part of the seminar's material,
involving specialized counting of non-dyadic variables.
For continuity, here is a link to the previous talk.
