### 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 ...
