Transcendental submanifolds of ${\mathbb R}{\mathbb P}^n$ cover


In this paper we give examples of closed smooth submanifolds of Rn\R\P^{n} which are isotopic to nonsingular projective subvarieties of Rn\R\P^{n} but they can not be isotopic to the real parts of nonsingular complex projective subvarieties of \Cn\C\P^{n}.
