### Parametric general position theorem for foliations

The situation is the following: let $M$ be a manifold endowed with a smooth foliation $\mathcal{F}$ of codimension one (suppose orientable, transversely orientable) and let $F_t : S \rightarrow M$ be ...

### Existence of closed transversals for taut foliations in arbitrary codimension

There are several different definitions of "tautness" for foliations, the most widely know is probably topological tautness, which is specific to codimension one and means that the foliation ...

### Transversality theorem for maps between fiber bundles

I am looking for a possible generalization of the standard Trasversality Theorem which roughly says that transverse maps are generic. For example, see the version below: From page 74, Theorem 2.1 in ...

### English language and Mathematics

I have a question maybe more relevant to an English language section of StackExchange, but I doubt that anybody but a Mathematician could properly answer my question. Let $\mathcal M$ be a smooth ...

### infinite-dimensional transversality theorem and its application on the universal moduli space of pseudo-holomorphic curves

We would like to discuss Proposition 3.2.1 in McDuff&Salamon's book "J-holomorphic Curves and Symplectic Topology(Second Endition)". Let me first remind you some background. Let $\Sigma$ be a ...

### Topological transversality

Warmup question: Let us say that two continuous functions $f,g:[0,1]\to \mathbb R$ are topologically transverse if their difference $f-g$ has only finitely many zeros, and each zero separates an ...
This question is about (a special case of) the varieties discussed here: Does the preimage of the Slodowy slice in $T^*G/P$ have a name?. Let $G = SL_n(\mathbb{C}), \mathfrak{g} = \mathfrak{sl}_n(\... 1answer 277 views ### General position argument for reasonable spaces Let$\mathcal{D} \approx \mathbb{P}^{\delta_d}$be the space of non zero homogeneous degree$d$polynomials in three variables up to scaling, where$\delta_d:= \frac{d(d+3)}{2} $. Given a point$p \...
I have two similar questions: 1) Let $X$ and $Y$ be two measure spaces. Suppose for every point $x \in X$ there exists a set $\mathcal{U}_x \subset Y$ of full measure in $Y$. Suppose \$V \subset ...
