Catégories inductives et pseudogroupes. (French) Zbl 0099.26002
Summary: The author goes again over the ground covered in his previous article [Jahresber. Dtsch. Math.-Ver. 60, 49–77 (1957; Zbl 0097.37803)] in an even more abstract fashion. The treatment, based on “induction functors” which generate an order relation in a certain type of groupoids, seems to avoid most logical difficulties, except those intrinsically connected with the notion of category. It is rather difficult to judge the importance of the changes introduced in this latest edition of the theory of jets until the long promised detailed study of Lie pseudogroups will have appeared.
