### Submersion function from a product space

Let $\Phi(x,y) \colon U_N \times U_M \to \mathbb{C}^n$ be a submersion, where $U_N \subset \mathbb{C}^N$ and $U_M \subset \mathbb{C}^M$.
Under which condition on $\Phi$ can I find some $s \in \...

### Submersion vs fiber bundle

If one starts with a fiber bundle $f: X \to Y$ so that fibers having trivial integral homology by using spectral sequence one can get the induced map $f_*: H_*(X;\mathbb{Z}) \to H_*(Y;\mathbb{Z})$ is ...

### When is a real-analytic variety a union of non-singular subvarieties?

I have asked this before on MSE, but received no answer yet.
Say I have a set in $\mathbb{R}^n$ defined to be the zero set of an analytic function $F:\mathbb{R}^n\to\mathbb{R}^k$, $k<n$. Everywhere,...

### Density of sections of vector bundles

Let $X$ be a complex manifold, $f:V \to X$ be a (real) vector bundle and $g:V \to \mathbb{R}^n$ a submersion for some $n>0$ (here $n$ is not the same as the dimension of the fiber of the vector ...

### 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 \...

### How restrictive is $[\mathcal H,\mathcal V] =0$, or weaker, $[X,A_XY] = 0$?

Let $\pi :P \to M$ be a Riemannian submersion. Let us denote by $\mathcal H$ the horizontal space of $\pi$ and by $\mathcal V$ its vertical space. I want to know restrictions and consequences of the ...

### A question about a paper of Bismut and Lebeau

Let $X$ be a Riemannian manifold, and $Y\hookrightarrow X$ be a closed submanifold of $X$ with normal bundle $N$ with the induced metric.
Then near $Y$, we have $$dv_X(y,Z)=k(y,Z)dv_Y(y)dv_{N_y}(Z),$$...

### Smooth submersions - smallest universal subclass of regular epimorphisms?

The smooth category has many problems. One is that pullbacks of regular epimorphisms need not exist.
However, pullbacks along submersions always exist. It also seems that submersions are universal (i....

### If the fibers of a submersion are connected, does it mean that any 2 sections are homotopic (locally on the base)?

Is the following fact known? If yes - what is the reference?
Let $\phi:X\to Y$ be a submersion of smooth manifolds with connected fibers.
Let $s_0,s_1:Y\to X$ be its (smooth) sections. Then, for any $...

### What are the smooth manifolds in the topos of sheaves on a smooth manifold?

The category of internal locales in the Grothendieck topos of sheaves on a locale X
is equivalent to the slice category over X.
In other words, internal locales over X are precisely morphisms of ...

### Examples of Riemannian Submersions

Is there any example of a Riemannian submersion, which is no fibration?
As far as I know, a (any) submersion is locally, but not globally, given by a fibration. The converse holds globally. ...
