1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Here is the context: suppose [itex]f=(f_1,...,f_{n+1})[/itex] is a smooth retraction of [itex]B^{n+1}[/itex] onto [itex]S^n[/itex] But what does the following statement mean? [itex]\int _{S^n}f_1df_2\wedge df_3 \wedge ... \wedge df_{n+1}[/itex] 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution
