By D. J. Saunders

The aim of this publication is to supply an advent to the speculation of jet bundles for mathematicians and physicists who desire to learn differential equations, relatively these linked to the calculus of adaptations, in a latest geometric approach. one of many issues of the e-book is that first-order jets can be regarded as the ordinary generalisation of vector fields for learning variational difficulties in box idea, and such a lot of of the structures are brought within the context of first- or second-order jets, sooner than being defined of their complete generality. The booklet encompasses a evidence of the neighborhood exactness of the variational bicomplex. an information of differential geometry is believed by means of the writer, even supposing introductory chapters comprise the required historical past of fibred manifolds, and on vector and affine bundles. Coordinate-free ideas are used all through, even supposing coordinate representations are usually utilized in proofs and while contemplating functions.

The best-known invariant differential operators are the de Rham differential of differential forms and the commutator of vector fields. These operators are invariant with respect to the action of the group of diffeomorphisms of the manifold. The expressions that describe these operations are independent of the choice of local coordinates. If a manifold M carries a geometric structure, the notion of the invariant differential operator changes accordingly: the full group of diffeomorphisms is restricted to the groups preserving the geometric structure.

K + 1}. 25) n+1 (S 1 ), the value where j ≤ k and ≤ j. In particular, for the module D−n/2,1+n/2 of δ = n + 1 is exceptional. 25) has two solutions: ( j = n + 1, = 2) and ( j = n, = 0). 22) is meaningless and, indeed, the symbol map σλ,μ does not exist. 7). 1 still applies to the subspace of such differential operators. Since an+1 = 1 and an = 0, the coefficients j C n+1 and C n are irrelevant, except C0n+1 , which equals 1. 22). 46 2 The geometry of the projective line As a consequence of the previous constructions, we obtain higher differential invariants of non-degenerate curves in RPn .

22 1 Introduction Computing the coadjoint representation To explain the relation of the Virasoro algebra to projective geometry we use the notion of coadjoint representation defined as follows. A Lie algebra g acts on its dual space by ad∗X φ, Y := − φ, [X, Y ] , for φ ∈ g∗ and X, Y ∈ g. This coadjoint representation carries much information about the Lie algebra. The dual space to the Virasoro algebra is Vir∗ = Vect(S 1 )∗ ⊕ R. It is always natural to begin the study of the dual space to a functional space with its subspace called the regular dual.
