Some remarks on tubular neighborhoods and gluing in Morse-Floer homology
We discuss the gluing principle in Morse-Floer homology and show that there is a gap in the traditional proof of the converse gluing theorem. We show how this gap can be closed by the use of a uniform tubular neighborhood theorem. The latter result is only stated here. Details are given in the authors' paper, Tubular neighborhoods and the Gluing Principle in Floer homology theory, to appear.
