**Grassmannians and Gauss Maps in Piecewise-Linear and Piecewise-Differential Topology**

The ebook explores the potential of extending the notions of "Grassmannian" and "Gauss map" to the PL class. they're extraordinary from "classifying house" and "classifying map" that are primarily homotopy-theoretic notions. The analogs of Grassmannian and Gauss map outlined include geometric and combinatorial info.
