### Path component of the mapping spaces $G(S^m, S^n)$

Let a non trivial $\alpha\in \pi_m(S^n)$ with a finite order $|\alpha|$. Write $G_\alpha(S^m, S^n)$ for the path-component determined by $\alpha$ of the mapping space $G(S^m, S^n)$ of free maps. Next,...

### Finding the set of best approximation

Given $X$=$l^1$ and its dual space $X^*=l^\infty$. Now take $f=(1, 1/2, 2/3, 3/4,...) \in X^*$. Then clearly $\|f\|_\infty = 1$. I have found that $H=\ker f$ is a proximinal hyperplane in $X$.
Note: A ...

### Topologies in $\mathcal{C}^\infty(M,N)$

Naively, one could topologise the set of smooth (ie $\mathcal{C}^\infty$) maps between two smooth manifolds $M \to N$ with the subspace topology $\mathcal{C}^\infty(M,N) \subseteq \mathcal{C}^0(M,N)$, ...

### Confused about the definition of the Kahn-Priddy map

The Kahn-Priddy map is defined in various papers as follows:
Define $i:\mathbb {RP}^{n-1}\rightarrow O(n)$ by taking $\ell\in \mathbb {RP}^{n-1}$ to the reflection across $\ell^\perp.$ Define $j:O(n)\...

### Does the continuous mapping space between topological manifolds always admit a Banach manifold structure?

Let $M$ and $N$ be smooth, i.e. $C^\infty$, manifolds. Suppose that $M$ is compact. Then for every $k \geq 0$ it is well known that $$C^k(M,N)$$ admits the structure of a smooth Banach manifold. I am ...

### Do submersions induce open maps between spaces of differentiable maps?

Let $X$, $Y$ and $Z$ be smooth manifolds.
Any differentiable map $f \colon Y \rightarrow Z$ induces a continuous map $f_{\ast} \colon C^{\infty}(X, Y) \rightarrow C^{\infty}(X, Z)$ via composition $g \...

### Simplicial models for mapping spaces of filtered maps

Let $S$ and $K$ be simplicial sets with $K$ Kan. Given simplicial sets $S$ and $K$, we let $SIMP(S,K)$ be the internal hom in the category of simplicial sets. Hence $SIMP(S,K)$ is Kan.
Suppose that ${...

### Contractible space of maps between Eilenberg-Mac Lane spaces, 2

Let $G$ and $H$ be torsion abelian groups.
Are the following are equivalent:
$\mathrm{Hom}(G, H) = 0$
$\mathrm{map}_*( K(G, m), K(H,n)) \sim *$ for all $n, m\geq 1$
?
Clearly (2) implies (1).
