Manifold

A manifold is a topological space locally homeomorphic to an open ball in some Euclidean space. It has some other properties, like having a countable basis or something, but nobody really cares about these. You can go ahead and think about manifolds as subspaces of some large Euclidean space anyway, since we can do this by the Whitney embedding theorem.
