The Legendrian Whitney trick

Roger Casals, Dishant M Pancholi and Francisco Presas

Geometry & Topology 25 (2021) 3229–3256
Abstract

We prove the Legendrian Whitney trick, which allows for the removal of intersections between codimension-2 contact submanifolds and Legendrian submanifolds, assuming such a smooth cancellation is possible. We apply this technique to prove the first known existence h–principle for codimension-2 isocontact embeddings, with a prescribed arbitrary contact structure on its domain.

Keywords
contact structure, isocontact embeddings, $h$–principle
