Directed immersions of closed manifolds

Mohammad Ghomi

Geometry & Topology 15 (2011) 699–705
Abstract

Given any finite subset X of the sphere Sn, n 2, which includes no pairs of antipodal points, we explicitly construct smoothly immersed closed orientable hypersurfaces in Euclidean space Rn+1 whose Gauss map misses X. In particular, this answers a question of M Gromov.
