In mathematics, a piecewise linear (PL) manifold is a topological manifold together with a piecewise linear structure on it. Such a structure can be defined by means of an atlas, such that one can pass from chart to chart in it by piecewise linear functions.## See also

Smooth manifolds have PL structures, but PL manifolds do not always have smooth structures.
