On a generalized degree for continuous maps between manifolds. (English) Zbl 0798.55003
Summary: We present a generalized degree for maps between manifolds via framed bordism theory. We study when the degree of a map can be considered as an element of a homotopy group of spheres. Finally we apply this tools to prove a result concerning the generalized Hopf invariant.
