Low stages of the Taylor tower for $r$-immersions

Bridget Schreiner, Franjo Šarčević and Ismar Volić

Vol. 13 (2020), No. 1, 51–75

We study the beginning of the Taylor tower, supplied by manifold calculus of functors, for the space of r-immersions, which are immersions without r-fold self-intersections. We describe the first r layers of the tower and discuss the connectivities of the associated maps. We also prove several results about r-immersions that are of independent interest.
