[edit] 1 Introduction
The Milnor hypersurfaces, denoted , are a family of smooth manifolds that generate (with redundancy) the complex bordism ring.
[edit] 2 Construction and examples
For fixed natural numbers , is defined as the hypersurface in satisfying the equation , where and are homogeneous coordinates for and respectively. This equation defines a generic hyperplane intersecting the image of the Segre embedding transversely.
The role of these manifolds in complex bordism is described on the page Complex bordism.
