In [[mathematics]], a '''submanifold''' of a [[manifold]] ''M'' is a [[subset]] ''S'' which itself has the structure of a manifold, and for which the [[inclusion map]] ''S'' → ''M'' satisfies certain properties. There are different types of submanifolds depending on exactly which properties are required. Different authors often have different definitions.
