Notations Z, Q, R, C, H denote (as usual) the rings of integers, rational, real
or complex numbers, and of quaternions. R n is real number space, with its
usual Euclidean structure.
Dn = { x e R n : ||x|| 1 } ,
S™-1 = {xeRn: \\x\\ = 1},

We use standard notation for manifolds. rM denotes the tangent bundle of M;
v is usually a normal bundle. If v is a bundle over X, Xu denotes its Thom
space. Our notation for Lie groups (e.g. O, Spin) and their classifying spaces
(e.g. BO) is also standard.
