The volume of generalized tubes.

Consider a small spherical tube around a compact submanifold M in Euclidean space. In 1939 Weyl showed that the volume of such a tube only depends on the radius of the tube and the intrinsic curvature of M. What happens for tubes with more complicated cross sections D? We will see that under sufficiently strong symmetry assumptions on D the tube volume turns out to be still intrinsic. Joint work with Gert Heckman.
