The local defect index up to finite ambiguity
Bechtluft-Sachs, Stefan (2002) The local defect index up to finite ambiguity. Topology and its Applications , 119 . pp. 113-116.
The rational Hopf invariant of the primary obstruction to a nowhere vanishing section in a vectorbundle is computed in terms of characteristic classes. This leads to a local rigidity result on the local defect index of a map.
