Smooth Generic Position
Abstract: We generalize classical knot diagrams and moves to higher dimensions. Smooth maps are generic when they cannot be fundamentally altered by small perturbations. Codimension-1 generic maps may be decomposed into simple structures of finitely many types. We catalog these structures for dimensions 0 through 3, and also catalog their moves.
