On the structure function of a G-structure. (English) Zbl 0587.58008
The structure function of a generalized G-structure can be defined in terms of the difference tensor of a semi-holonomic 2-jet. The construction of the structure function of a first order G-structure is worked out and compared with the classical construction.
