Please pass this information on to anyone who might be interested. Enrollment time for nonGerman BScs is very short!
The equivalence of the definition of orientation for an ndim. manifold given in the lectures to the
existence of a nowhere vanishing nform is stated and proved in Prop. 2.5.2 in the book of Kriele cited below.
