On the k-Semispray of Nonlinear Connections in k-Tangent Bundle Geometry

Full Text PDF


In this paper we present a method by which is obtained a sequence of k-semisprays and two sequences of nonlinear connections on the k-tangent bundle TkM starting from a given one. Interesting particular cases appear for Lagrange and Finsler spaces of order k.
