# Is injection from manifold to tangent manifold well defined?

I would like to know if the injection map $i : M\to TM$, given by $i(x)\mapsto (x,0)$, is a well-defined and canonical application (not dependent on any particular coordinate chart).

Yes, this is the zero section, which exists in every vector bundle. –  t.b. Apr 23 '12 at 14:14

(Hint: the transition functions are smooth maps $\theta_{UV}:U\cap V\to Gl(n;\mathbb{R})$. In particular, for all $x\in U\cap V$, $\theta_{UV}(x)$ is a linear map. What does this say about how $i$ transforms between coordinate systems?)
