Title:  Some normal form theorems in differential geometry

Abstract:   A vector field is "Euler-like" with respect to a submanifold if its linear approximation is the Euler vector field on the normal bundle. We show that such a vector field canonically determines a tubular neighborhood embedding, and use this fact to discuss various normal form theorems in differential geometry. Examples range from Morse's lemma to various splitting theorems for singular foliations.
