- A smooth cobordism from to i.e. a manifold with boundary with a diffeomorphism
- A smooth map such that the composite of with the inclusions of are respectively the maps
Note that we may sometimes fix the cobordism between and , and ask whether we can fill in a function for the particular cobordism.
