The main result of this paper (presented in the Shafarevich seminar) is as follows: If \(P\rightarrow X\) is a bundle of geometric objects such that the dimension of its generic fibre exceeds that of its base \(X\), then the number \(t(k)\) of functionally independent differential invariants of degree \(k\) at any sufficiently general point tends to infinity as \(k\) grows.
Also, an asymptotic lower bound for \(t(k)\) is obtained and a generalization of the previous theorem is given.
