In the present paper differential geometry is applied to multidimensional affine spaces. The method used is based on the differential geometrical method developed by G. F. Laptev [Tr. Mosk. Mat. Soc. Obshch. 2, 275–382 (1953; Zbl 0053.42802)]. The three-component distribution of affine spaces is considered and some connections are constructed, generalizing the theory of regular and vanishing hyper-zones, zones, hyper-zone distributions, surface of full and non full rank. The results obtained can be applied to the general theory of distributions in multi-dimensional spaces and to the theory of connections, which are associated with multi-component distributions.
