Natural transformations of the second tangent functor and soldered morphisms. (English) Zbl 0779.53015

All natural transformations of the iterated tangent functor TT into itself were determined by the reviewer [Arch. Math., Brno 20, 169-172 (1984; Zbl 0578.58004)]. The author rededuces this result by using the concept of double vector bundle with soldering and presents geometric interpretation of the transformations in question.
