Non-clean fiber products

Usually, the most general condition for fiber product of manifolds (or vector bundles) to exist is that we require the images cleanly intersects. See e.g. When do fibre products of smooth manifolds ...

Isomorphism type of fibered products of groups

This question is, in a way, a follow-up of this earlier question of mine. Background Let $A$, $B$ and $F$ be finite groups and let $\alpha: A \to F$ and $\beta: B \to F$ be surjective homomorphisms. ...

Expressing fiber product of affines via an ideal

Let $X$ (resp. $Y$) be the affine $k$-scheme defined by the ideal $I$ (resp. $J$) in the polynomial ring $k[x_1,...x_n]$ (resp. $k[y_1,...,y_m]$). Let $Z$ be the affine scheme defined by the ideal ...

When do fibre products of smooth manifolds exist?

Harold asks what conditions on $f:M\to L$ and $g:N\to L$, both smooth maps of smooth manifolds, ensures the existence of the fibre product $M \times_L N$.
