The project deals with the study of the basic concepts in differential topology and their connections with the classical topological methods in nonlinear analysis, as the topological degree theory and the notion of degree of a tangent vector field to a differentiable manifold. These methods will be applied to the study of some differential equations, of first and second order, on manifolds. Classical topological results, as Brouwer and Schauder fixed point theorems will be tackled. (AU)
