### Inverse Problem for Pullback

Let $M$ and $N$ be smooth manifolds and $T: M \to N$ be a smooth map. Let $\mathcal{F}(M,\mathbb{R})$ (resp.$\mathcal{F}(N,\mathbb{R})$) denote the space of smooth functions from $M$ (resp. $N$) ...

### Exploiting the Linearity of the Pullback [closed]

Edit: This question has been significantly revised. Some recent developments in computational geometry (for example see http://geometry.stanford.edu//papers/fmfrmbs-obsbg-12/fmfrmbs-obsbg-12.pdf) ...
