Do partitions of unity exist if we impose additional conditions on the derivatives?

Let $ ~~\cup_{k=-1}^{\infty} U_k = \mathbb{R} $ be an open covering of $\mathbb{R}$. It is a well known fact that partitions of unity subbordinate to the cover exists, i.e. there exists smooth ...

How does the lack of partitions of unity affect the structure of analytic/holomorphic manifolds?

The standard way to define integration on a smooth manifold is to use partitions of unity, to extend to the case where the form you're integrating isn't supported on just one coordinate patch. Of ...

symplectic form with partition on unity

Assume $M$ is a $2n-$dimensional differentiable manifold. Let $(U_{i})$ be a open covering of $M$. With respect to this covering let $\rho_{i}$ be a partition of unity. Assume that on each $U_{i}$ we ...

What is the right version of “partitions of unity implies vanishing sheaf cohomology”

There are several theorems I know of the form "Let $X$ be a locally ringed space obeying some condition like existence of partitions of unity. Let $E$ be a sheaf of $\mathcal{O}_X$ modules obeying ...

An “existence contra partition of unity” statement for integer matrices?

While reading a blog post on partitions of unity at the Secret Blogging Seminar the following question came into my mind. Let $n$ be a positive integer and let $B_1$ and $B_2$ be $n \times n$ ...
