Our approach is based on the following sampling existence theorem for differentiable manifolds that was recently presented and applied in the context of Image Processing ([47], [48]) (1):
Indeed, let N and M be two differentiable manifolds and x: N [right arrow] M be a differentiable submanifold map.

This text for graduate students and research mathematicians progresses from differentiable manifolds and the tangent structure through the local Frobenius theorem, covariant derivatives, and Riemannian and semi-Riemannian geometry.
We remark that higher order rate distortion manifolds are likely to give better approximations than lower ones, in the same sense that second order tangent structures give better, if more complicated, approximations in conventional differentiable manifolds.
We have used differentiable manifolds through out this paper.
