Idea

A notion of infinite-dimensional manifold. A Banach manifold is a manifold modelled on Banach spaces. By default, transition maps are taken to be smooth.

Properties

Embedding into the category of diffeological spaces

The category of smooth Banach manifolds has a full and faithful functor into the category of diffeological spaces. In terms of Chen smooth spaces this was observed in (Hain). For more see at Fréchet manifold – Relation to diffeological spaces.

References

For general references see at infinite-dimensional manifold.

The embedding into the category of diffeological spaces is discussed in
