    Summary
    Consider a closed manifold M immersed in Rm. Suppose that the trivial bundle M × Rm = T M ⊗ ν M is equipped with an almost metric connection ~ ∇ which almost preserves the decomposition of M × Rm into the tangent and the normal bundle. Assume moreover that the difference Γ = ∂~∇ with the usual derivative ∂ in Rm is almost ~∇-parallel. Then M admits an extrinsically homogeneous immersion into Rm.
