Definition in terms of sheaves
A '''differential manifold''' or '''smooth manifold''' is the following data:
* A [[topological spacemanifold]] <math>M</math>* A subsheaf of the [[sheaf of continuous functions]] from <math>M</math> to <math>\R</math>, which plays the role of the [[sheaf of infintely differentiable functions]]{{fillin}}Such that every point has a neighbourhood with a homeomorphism to an open set in <math>\R^n</math>, such that the ring associated to that open set inthe sheaf, corresponds to the sheaf of infinitely differentiable functions on that open set.
