Abstract [en]

Regular homotopy classes of immersions $S^3 \to R^5$ constitute an infinite cyclic group. The classes containing embeddings form a subgroup of index 24. The obstruction for a generic immersion to be regularly homotopic to an embedding is described in terms of geometric invariants of its self-intersection. Geometric properties of self-intersections are used to construct two invariants J and St of generic immersions which are analogous to Arnold's invariants of plane curves [1]. We prove that J and St are independent first-order invariants and that any first-order invariant is a linear combination of these. As by-products, some invariants of immersions are obtained. Using them, we find restrictions on the topology of self-intersections
