Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the definition ofdiffeomorphismis: a bijection [itex]f:M\rightarrow N[/itex] between two manifolds, such that bothfandf^{-1}are smooth.

Is it thus correct to say that a (admissible)change of coordinatesis a diffeomorphism between two manifolds?
