Consider a C-smooth fibration p: XV and let X (r) be the space of r-jets (of germs) of smooth sections f: VX. Denote by p r : X (r)V and p r s : X ( s )X (r) for s > r ≥ 0, where X (0) \(\mathop{{{\text{ }} = }}\limits^{{def}}\) X, the natural projections. The r th-order jet (or r-jet) of a C r -smooth section f: VX is denoted by J f r : VX (r). A section φ: VX (r) is called holonomic if it is the r-jet of some C r -section f: VX. This f, if it exists, is unique. Namely f = p 0 r φ, since p 0 r J f r = f for all sections f: VX. Thus, sections f: VX are identified with holonomic sections VX (r) by f ↦ J f r .
