Isometric immersions into manifolds without conjugate points

  • J. Bolton (a1)


1. Introduction and statement of results. Let f: Mn-1 → ℝn be an immersion into Euclidean space ℝn. Each unit vector v to ℝn determines a height function bv: ℝn → ℝ. The corresponding half-space Lv = b-1([0, ∞) has boundary Hv = (b−1). and L is a (globally) supporting half-space for M at m є M if (m) є H and f(M) ∩ Lv = f(M) ∩ Hv.
