# Sc-smoothness, retractions and new models for smooth spaces

• We present the concept of sc-smoothness for Banach spaces, which leads to new models of spaces having locally varying dimensions called M-polyfolds. We present detailed proofs of the technical results needed for the applications, in particular, to the Symplectic Field Theory. We also outline a very general Fredholm theory for bundles over M-polyfolds. The concepts are illustrated by holomorphic mappings between conformal cylinders which break apart as the modulus tends to infinity.
