Idea

A notion of infinite-dimensional manifold. A Banach manifold is a manifold modelled on Banach spaces. By default, transition maps are taken to be smooth.

Properties

Embedding into the category of diffeological spaces

The category of smooth Banach manifolds has a full and faithful functor into the category of diffeological spaces. In terms of Chen smooth spaces this was observed in (Hain).

The embedding into the category of diffeological spaces is discussed in
