Abstract

Given a connected, compact, totally geodesic submanifold ${Y}^{m}$ of noncompact type inside a compact locally symmetric space of noncompact type ${X}^{n}$, we provide a sufficient condition that ensures that $\left[{Y}^{m}\right]\ne 0\in {H}_{m}\left({X}^{n};ℝ\right)$; in low dimensions, our condition is also necessary. We provide conditions under which there exist a tangential map of pairs from a finite cover $\left(\stackrel{̄}{X},\stackrel{̄}{Y}\right)$ to the nonnegatively curved duals $\left({X}_{u},{Y}_{u}\right)$.
