Totally Real Mappings and Independent Mappings
by Howard Jacobowitz   Peter Landweber

Vol. 8 No. 2 (2013) P.219~P.230

ABSTRACT

The optimal dimensions $N$ are determined so that each smooth manifold of dimension $n$ admits a totally real immersion or an independent map to $\mathbf{C}^N$. Detailed results comparing these two optimal dimensions, as well as some related results, are presented for four-manifolds.
