The subject of this paper is devoted to further investigation of the relations between the objects of nonassociative algebra and differential geometry. [For a detailed interpretation of these ideas and some main results see the fundamental work of the author [Methods of nonassociative algebra in differential geometry. Addition to S. Kobayashi and K. Nomizu, Foundations of differential geometry V. II. (Russian) (Nauka, Moskva 1981; Zbl 0526.53001)].
An odule \(<M,\cdot,\epsilon,(t)_{t\in {\mathbb{R}}}>\) is called geometric if the following identity holds: \(\ell (a,y)ty=t\ell (a,y)y\) where \(\ell (a,y)={\mathcal L}^{-1}_{ay}\cdot {\mathcal L}_ a\cdot {\mathcal L}_ y\). The paper contains a proof of the following statement: any geometric odule can be realized as a geodesic odule for some space with an affine connection.
