comment Generalize Gauss-Bonnet Formula to non-simple closed curves
You aren't really talking about an extension of the Gauss-Bonnet Formula, more just one of the standard ways of stating it. Isn't it stated essentially the above way in Milman-Parker, for instance?

comment How can i change 8_19 to (3,4)-torus knot K(3,4)?
I added a picture. It looks like a torus knot to me. Perhaps you are using a different projection, seogman?

comment Applications of set theory in physics
Asking mathematicians whether or not some mathematics is important to physicists is perhaps a little un-natural. Why not ask physicists if you want a useful answer?

comment Schoenflies and symplectic topology
Oh, okay, sorry I originally thought your question was a request to fill in the details, i.e. actually prove the smooth Schoenflies hypothesis in dimension 4. I'm pretty sure your interpretation is correct.

comment Schoenflies and symplectic topology
Generally speaking this isn't a place to post giant, long known open problems. Usually such questions are closed quite rapidly.

comment Poincare-Lefschetz duality, universal coefficients, and middle cohomology
Yes, it's possible to not only compute $r$ but to compute all the maps. Is that all you want to know?
