Slovák, Jan (ed.) et al., Proceedings of the 18th winter school “Geometry and physics”, Srní, Czech Republic, January 10-17, 1998. Palermo: Circolo Matematico di Palermo, Suppl. Rend. Circ. Mat. Palermo, II. Ser. 59, 181-187 (1999).
Let \(Y\to M\) be a fibered manifold over a manifold \(M\) and \(\mu: A\to B\) be a homomorphism between Weil algebras \(A\) and \(B\). Using the results of Mikulski and others, which classify product preserving bundle functors on the category of fibered manifolds, the author classifies all natural operators \(T_{\text{proj}} Y\to T^\mu Y\), where \(T_{\text{proj}}Y\) denotes the space of projective vector fields on \(Y\) and \(T^\mu\) the bundle functors associated with \(\mu\).
