This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

 A178311 Davis's upper bound for span(P^m x P^111) with m = 3 * (2^n - 1) for 5 <= n <= 17, and P^k denoting real projective space. 0

 OFFSET 5,1 COMMENTS From Table 3.2, p.10, of Davis. The span of a manifold is its maximum number of linearly independent vector fields. We discuss the question, still unresolved, of whether span(P^m x P^n) always equals span(P^m) + span(P^n). Here P^n denotes real projective space. We use BP-cohomology to obtain new upper bounds for span(P^m x P^n), much stronger than previously known bounds. LINKS Donald M. Davis, Vector fields on RP^m x RP^n, Dec 17, 2010.
