Template:Category structure on diff manifolds

Definition

The category of differential manifolds with smooth maps is defined as follows:

Functors

There is a functor from the category of differential manifolds and smooth maps, to the category of topological spaces with continuous maps, that sends a differential manifold to its underlying topological space, and sends a smooth map to the underlying continuous map of topological spaces.
