11 Fibre bundles 29 Jet bundles J (n) (X, U ) are another type of ﬁbre bundle of interest in exact solutions (see Chapter 10). They are used in describing systems of diﬀerential equations. Here the base manifold X is the space of independent variables and the ﬁbre is the set U of values of the dependent variables and their ﬁrst n partial derivatives with respect to the X. A (partial) diﬀerential equation, or a system of such equations, speciﬁes a submanifold in a jet bundle. 1 Introduction In Chapter 2 we treated diﬀerential geometry without a metric.

If α is a p-form (p ≥ 1) and dα = 0, then there is a (p − 1)-form β such that α = dβ. In components, α[i1 ···ip ,j] = 0 ⇔ αi1 ···ip = β[i1 ···ip−1 ,ip ] . 2 (Frobenius’s theorem). Let σ 1 , . . , σ r be r 1-forms linearly independent at a point p ∈ M. Suppose there are 1-forms τ A B (A, B = 1, . . , r) satisfying dσ A = τ A B ∧ σ B . Then in a neighbourhood of p there are functions f A B , hA such that σ A = f A B dhB . Other formulations of Frobenius’s theorem. Introducing the r-form Σ ≡ σ 1 ∧ · · · ∧ σ r , we can replace the condition dσ A = τ A B ∧ σ B by either of the two equivalent conditions: (i) dσ A ∧ Σ = 0, (ii) there exists a 1-form λ such that dΣ = λ ∧ Σ .
