Prove that if D is the closed disc |x| 1 in R2, then any map f 2 C2[D ! D] has a fixed point: f(x) = x. The proof is by contradiction, and uses Stokes theorem. Follow the steps outlined below.

(1) Define a new map F(x) = 1

....

Show that F has no fixed points if r is small enough.

(2) Draw the ray from F(x) to x (these are distict) and note where it cuts the circle C : |x| = 1. This point G(x) = (cos , sin ) depends smoothly on x, i.e. ...;moreover, it reduces to the identity on C.

(3) Now compute

....

(4) Explain why the above is a contradiction?
