Deformability of a submanifold in a Euclidean space whose image by the Gauss map is fixed
Abstract: In the present paper, deformations of an immersion of an m-dimensional manifold M in Euclidean n-space such that the Gauss image is fixed pointwise are studied. We call such deformations admissible deformations. The main theorem gives a necessary and sufficient condition for an immersed manifold to admit nontrivial admissible deformations.
