In case of daubts You should get familiar with the definition of microbundle.

Exercise 0.1 [Milnor1964, Lemma 2.1]. Let M be a topological manifold. Show that \xi_M : = (M \times M, M, \Delta_M, p_1) is a microbundle.

Proof.

Let M be a topological manifold. Then the composition p_1\circ\Delta_M sends x\mapsto (x,x)\mapsto x, so the first condition in the definition is satisfied.

To prove that the second condition is satisfied we need to use local chart around x. Choose U to be one of the open sets coming from atlas of M and let \phi\colon U\to \mathbb{R}^n be associated chart. The obvious choice for neighbourhood V\subset M\times M is to take U\times U. The first naive candidate for h\colon V=U\times U\to U\times\mathbb{R}^n would be map \id\times \phi. However such h fails to make the following diagram commute

\displaystyle  \xymatrix{ &U\times U\ar[rd]^{p_1}\ar[dd]^h&\\ U\ar[ru]^{\Delta_M}\ar[rd]_{\id\times\{0\}} & & U\\ &U\times \Rr^n\ar[ru]_{p_1}&}

since (u,u) is mapped to (u,\phi(u)) and \phi(u) doesn't necessarily be 0 (well, it depends on our definition of an atlas of a manifold?). We need just a small adjustment: h(u,v)=(u,h(u)-h(v)).

\square


Exercise 0.2 [Milnor1964, Theorem 2.2]. Let M be a (paracompact!) smooth manifold. Show that TM and \xi_M are isomorphic microbundles.

Proof. We have two concurring definitions of micro-tangent bundle. The first is given by the exercise above, the second by forgeting about the vector bundle structure on TM and treating it just as a microbundle (TM, M, \pi,s_0) where M\xrightarrow{s_0} TM is the zero section.

To fix the notation please consult the definition of microbundle isomorphism on page on microbundles .

In our case we have

\displaystyle  \xymatrix{ & V\ar[dd]^H \ar[rd]^{p_1}&\\ M\ar[dr]_{\Delta_M}\ar[ur]^{s_0} & & M\\ & M\times M \ar[ru]&}

where V\subset TM is an open neighbourhood of the zero section.

However to show that these two definition agree we need a notion of microbundle isomorphism. {{beginthm|Definition}} Two microbundles $(E_n,X,i_n,j_n)$, $n=1,2$ over the same space $X$ are isomorphic if there exist neighbourhoods $V_1\subset E_1$ of $i_1(B)$ and $V_2\subset E_2$ of $i_2(B)$ and a homeomorphism $H\colon V_1\to V_2$ making the following diagram commute. $$ \xymatrix{ U \ar[d]^{i_1}\ar[r]^{i_2}& V_2 \ar[d]^{p_2}\ V_1\ar[r]^{p_1} \ar[ur]^{H} & U,} $$ {{endthm|Definition}} In our case we have $$ \xymatrix{ U \ar[d]^{\Delta_M}\ar[r]^{s_0}& V \ar[d]^{p_2}\ U\times U\ar[r]^{p_1} \ar[ur]^{H} & U,} $$ where $V\subset TM$ is an open neighbourhood of the zero section. Because of the vector bundle structure we may identify $V\cong U\times \mathbb{R}^n$ via local trivialisation. {{endproof}} M be a topological manifold.
