### Is this manifold orientable? [closed]

Let $C$ be the set of points $(a,b,c,d) \in \mathbb{C}^4$ which satisfy
1) $ \left|a\right|^2+\left|c\right|^2=\left|b\right|^2+\left|d\right|^2 =1 $.
2) $ a\bar{b}+c\bar{d}=0 $
There is a ...

### Can all n-manifolds be obtained by gluing finitely many blocks?

Fix a dimension $n\geqslant 2$. Let $S= \{M_1,\ldots, M_k\}$ be a finite set of smooth compact $n$-manifold with boundary. Let us say that a smooth closed $n$-manifold is generated by $S$ if it may ...

### $Spin^c$-Dirac-operator on the 3-torus

Consider the spinc structure on the flat standard 3-torus, which you get from the trivial (or any other) spin structure. Its associated vector bundle can be identified with a trivial bundle with fibre ...
