1 Introduction
‘The complement of the diagonal’ and ‘the Gauss map’ ideas play a greatrole in different branches of mathematics [Gl68, Va92]. The Haefliger-Wu invariant is amanifestation of these ideas in the theory of embeddings. The complement to the diagonalidea originated from two celebrated theorems: the Lefschetz Fixed Point Theorem andthe Borsuk-Ulam Antipodes Theorem
2 Construction and examples
For a manifold , denotes the deleted product of , i.e. minus an open tubular neighborhood of the diagonal. It is a manifold with boundary and has the standard free involution.
Definition 2.1.[of the Haefliger-Wu invariant ]
The Haefliger-Wu invariant is induced by the Gauss map, also denoted by . The Gauss map assigns to an individual embedding an equivariant map defined by the formula
Theorem 2.2. The Haefliger-Wu invariant is one-to-one for .
