### Are affine maps (wrt to a connection), which preserve a tensor field, given by a PDE?

Let $(M, \nabla)$ be a manifold together with a connection on $TM$ and let $T$ be a tensor field on $M$. Suppose the pseudogroup $\Gamma$ of locally defined smooth maps, that simultanously preserve ...

### How to visualize the dual objects of jets of functions?

I work with a smooth $f: M \to \Bbb C$ and I would like to have an object mimicking the concept of "$k$-th order differential" from multivariate calculus. For various reasons that are not important ...

### Jets in synthetic differential geometry

As I understand it from Kostecki's notes, the $k$-jet $j^k f$ of a function $f: R^n \to R^m$ should be the map $$f^{D_k(n)} : {(R^n)}^{D_k(n)} \to (R^m)^{D_k(n)},$$
where $$D_k(n) = \{(x_1, \ldots, ...

### When does 'Zariski tangent space derivative' vanishes everywhere imply that a section is constant?

Consider an abelian algebra, $R$, over the field $K$ with the properties that every residue field of $R$ is (canonically) isomorphic to $K$ (I'm not sure but I think this is necessary, otherwise we ...

### Differential ideals of Pfaffian forms on jet bundles (Integrability)

(I asked this question on math.stackexchange, but got no reaction in several weeks. So, my conclusion is, that it is harder to answer than I thought, and maybe admissible for the attribute 'research ...

### Induced Riemannian metric on Jet-Manifold

Suppose $(M,g)$ and $(N,g')$ are smooth Riemannian manifolds and $J^r(M,N)$ is the
smooth manifold of $r$-jets $j^r_xf$ of smooth maps $f:M\to N$.
Is there an 'induced' Riemannian metric $g''$ on ...

### Multivalued solution of PDE ${v_{xx}v_{yy}-v_{xy}^{2}}={(1+v_{x}^{2}+v_{y}^{2})^2}$

Let's start with a definition:
Definition: A scalar k-th order differential equation on a smooth manifold $M$,
is $F(x,v,\frac{\partial {^\left | \sigma \right |}v}{\partial x^\sigma })=0 $
for ...

### Tautological and normal bundles over flag manifolds and jet bundles

Hello! Recently, doing my research on jet bundles, I was led to consider the following construction.
Let $V$ be a real vector space of dimension $n$. Consider the flag manifold $G(V,k,l)$ and the ...

### Inverse Problem for jet equations

The following is a well known fact and due to the functorial properties of the jet functor:
Suppose you have two smooth manifolds $M$ and $N$ and maps $f:M \rightarrow N$ as well as
$g: M \rightarrow ...

### Jet spaces between non Hausdorff manifolds

I found it very hard to find literature about smooth manifolds that are not required to be Hausdorff. In particular I'm interested in their local properties:
1.) Are the $r$-th order jet bundles ...

### On the smooth structure of the spaces of $k$-jets

I was asking myself, if the following list of conditions is sufficient to determine the usual smooth structure on the spaces of $k$-jets.
the map $j^k f:M\ni x\to j_x^k f\in J^k(M,N)$ is smooth, ...
