Requiring background in basic differential topology, this book is aimed at researchers interested in the homotopy type of spaces of smooth embeddings and spaces of diffeomorphisms. The author provides a proof of a useful connectivity estimate in the theory of concordances (or pseudo-isotopies), generalizing Morlet's result from triads to n-ads. The method of proof is a differentiable general position technique analogous to piecewise-linear "sunny collapsing."
