Immersions of $RP^{2^e-1}$

Donald M Davis, Giora Dula, Jesús González and Mark Mahowald

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 8 (2008) 997–1030
Abstract

We prove that RP2e1 can be immersed in 2e+1e7 provided e 7. If e 14, this is 1 better than previously known immersions. Our method is primarily an induction on geometric dimension, with compatibility of liftings being a central issue.
