Global analysis on punctured surfaces

Global analysis on open manifolds seems pretty hard. For one, the space of $C^{n,\alpha}$ functions on an open manifold need not be a tame Fréchet space (see the post Are smooth functions tame? for ...

Is there a version of Hamilton's infinite dimensional family of implicit function theorems which gives us a submersion map?

Hamilton, in his notes on "Inverse Function Theorem of Nash and Moser" states a theorem(1.1.3 on Page 172), where a given nonlinear map between tame Frechet spaces is locally surjective, if ...

Intersection modulo 2 theory for infinite dimensional manifolds?

For finite dimensional manifolds, there is a lot of theory about when the number of intersections (modulo $2$) of certain objects are preserved under homotopy. I'll give two quick examples: Let $f:X \...
