This paper is a synthesis of the theory of jets, the contact elements of superior order and the foliations of second order on the one hand and some ideas of Finsler spaces on the other hand. The author presents the fiber bundles associated to a surjective submersion, the semi-basic and vertical differential forms, the holonomic vector fields, the sprays, presprays and foliations of second order, endomorphisms and isomorphisms associated to a prespray, connections associated to sprays and presprays and Legendre homogeneous transformations.
