So no such diffeomorphism could exist. An exercise section in Chapter 4 leads the student through a construction of de Rham cohomology and a proof of its homotopy invariance. Good book but the print quality is not so good.
Also, 0 is not in the open upper half space. The text is mostly self-contained, requiring only undergraduate analysis and linear algebra.
I agree with the reviewer who is not a “higher mathematician”. Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life.
Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. The definitions at times are sloppy and the over all feel from the book is simply too casual to use as a text. It can’t linearly map a ball to pollakc half-ball.

There are several major flaws in it. The book is suitable for either an introductory graduate course or an advanced undergraduate course. Neither am I; in fact, I repeatedly found that both Milnor and Hirsch became remarkably clearer after reading the same material from this book.
Definitions, theorems and proofs are often mixed in paragraphs with a large amount of wishy-washy explanations, which makes the book useless if you are using it for reference. I fear I’ll be dizzy if I start reading this; I guess that if I try to scan a page of the original with my home scanner and print it on a laser printer I’ll get a better result. Some are routine explorations of the main material.
From Detroit Top Contributor: I have guilllemin large amounts of time trying to find some particular definition required for a simple problem because the definition was hidden in a paragraph of useless gibberish.
