Complex bundles with two sections

  • Elmer Rees (a1)


Atiyah(2) defined the geometrical dimension of an element to be less than k + 1 (g dim (x) ≤ k) if there is a k-dimensional bundle over X whose stable equivalence class is x. If ξ is an n-plane complex bundle over X, we say that it has r sections if there is an (nr)-plane bundle η such that ξ is isomorphic to η ⊕ εr where εr is the trivial r-plane bundle over X. If X has dimension 2n or less, then ξ has r sections if and only if g dim (ξ − n) ≤ nr.
