 About 979 results  books.google.com This book presents the first steps of a theory of confoliations designed to link geometry and topology of threedimensional contact structures with the geometry and topology of codimensionone foliations on threedimensional manifolds. 

 books.google.com This is indicated in the following two theorems. Theorem 3.5 (Reeb stability for
confoliations, Eliashberg and Thurston, 1998 [12]). Suppose a confoliation ξ on M
admits an embedded integral 2sphere S (i.e. for all x ∈ S we have TxS = ξx)
then ...

 books.google.com Charles Benedict Thomas  1996  Preview (Locally near x projection shows that the space of leaves can be identified with a
subinterval of R.) Theorem 4.1 Let (M,£) be a Ck confoliation of codimension one
(k ^ 2) different from the foliation of Sl x S2 by * x S2. There is a C° perturbation ... 

 books.google.com Set Mħ = Dħ x R. Changing, if necessary, the splitting M+ = D+ x R we can
arrange that in the cylindrical coordinates z & R, p £ [0, 1], 0 [0, 27r),
corresponding to the splitting the confoliation £ay+ is given by the form a+ = dz +
f(z,p,0)d8), ... 

 books.google.com Therefore, a' gives rise to an extension of £' to a positive confoliation on Mi . The
construction is similar on i? x [0, oo). £' is foliated on M and contact on Mi\M. Step
2 Next extend £ to a foliation and £' to a positive confoliation on M2 = Mi U (7' x ...

 books.google.com Approximation of Confoliations by Contact Structures According to Eliashberg
and Thurston [8], a tangent hyperplane field £ = {a = 0} on a (2n + l)dimensional
manifold T is called a positive confoliation if there exists an almost complex ...
