Abstract

We prove that the Hatcher-Quinn and Wall invariants of a self-transverse immersion f: N-n (sic) M-2n coincide. That is, we construct an isomorphism between their target groups, which carries one onto the other. We also employ methods of normal bordism theory to investigate the Hatcher-Quinn invariant of an immersion f: N-n (sic) M2n-1.
