### Dual of isometric copies into dual Banach spaces

Let $X$ be a Banach space and $X_1\xrightarrow{}X$ isometrically. Under some assumption can we guarantee that $X^*$ contains an isometric copy of $X_1^*$. I am also interested to know if this happens ...

### Sobolev space of maps between manifolds with boundary

Let $(M,g)$ and $(N,h)$ be compact Riemannian manifolds with non-empty smooth boundary. If we consider the Sobolev space $W^{1,p}(M,N)$, is there a reference on how to model this as a manifold? If ...

### Examples of Banach manifolds with function spaces as tangent spaces

I have recently been learning the theory of Banach manifolds through Serge Lang's book on Differential Manifolds. So far the objects seem rather interesting but my intuition always comes from the ...

### What would be the cotangent bundle of a Banach manifold?

Reference: Lang - Differential manifolds p.123 Quick question: Lang defines the cotangent bundle as the dual vector bundle of the tangent bundle, but shouldn't there be additionally a somewhat ...

### the tangent space $T_J\mathcal J^k$ of the space of $\omega$-compatible almost complex structure

Let $(M,\omega)$ is a symplectic manifold, and you can assume it is compact if necessary. Denote by $\mathcal J^k = \mathcal J^k(M, \omega)$ the set of all $\omega$-compatible almost complex ...

### why is $W^{k,p}(\Sigma, u^*TM)$ the tangent space of $W^{k,p}(\Sigma,M)$ at $u$

Let $\Sigma$ and $M$ be two smooth manifolds with $\Sigma$ compact. It is a well-known fact that $W^{k,p}(\Sigma, u^*TM)$ is the tangent space of $W^{k,p}(\Sigma,M)$ at $u$. (You can replace these ...

### Second Countability hypothesis for a Banach manifold

Is the second countability hypothesis necessary to rigoruosly define a Banach Manifold (say in infinite dimension)? In the finite-dimensional theory of manifolds, that request is included in the ...

### Intuition: Smooth functions on Banach Spaces

On finite-dimensional vector spaces, we all have a reasonable idea of which functions are likely to be $C^1$ or smooth. When it comes to differentiation on Banach spaces, I find that my `intuition' ...

### Projective tensor product continuous?

For $V$, $W$ Banach spaces, is the canonical morphism $B(V) \times_\pi B(W) \to B(V \hat{\otimes}_\pi W)$ continuous, where $B(V)$ denotes the set of all linear bounded endomorphisms with operator ...

### Structure of $C^k$ ($k<\infty$)Riemannian metrics on a manifold

$M$ is a smooth manifold. It's known that if $M$ is compact, then the space of smooth Riemannian metrics has a Frechet manifold structure. For the space of $C^k$($k<\infty$) Riemannian metrics, ...

### Geodesic on Banach Manifold [closed]

Is there a way of defining a geodesic on a Banach Manifold $M$ which is not itself a Hilbert Manifold?

Fix a Riemannian metric on a manifold $M$. Suppose that we fix two points $x,y \in M$. We start with the space $C^{\infty}_{\searrow}(x,y) = \left\{\gamma: \mathbb{R}\to M:\,\lim_{t\to-\infty}\... 1answer 83 views ### Embedding Riemmanian Manifold Linearly Given a Hilbert Manifold$M$does there exist a smooth map into some very large Hilbert space taking geodesics to straight lines? 0answers 359 views ### Reference for the Banach Manifold structure of$C^k(M,N)$I'm completely new to the subject of banach manifolds and I'm looking for a reference of the following: Let$M$,$N$be smooth (=$C^\infty$) finite-dimensional compact manifolds. Consider the set$C^...
I'm currently reading some papers by Uhlenbeck on harmonic maps. She mentions the following facts: Let $M^m$ and $N^n$ be compact Riemannian manifolds, $N$ embedded isometrically into Euclidean space....
