Interior and Exterior Differential Systems for Lie Algebroids
Abstract: A theorem of Maurer-Cartan type for Lie algebroids is presented. Suppose that any vector subbundle of a Lie algebroid is called interior differential system (IDS) for that Lie algebroid. A theorem of Frobenius type is obtained. Extending the classical notion of exterior diffential system (EDS) to Lie algebroids, a theorem of Cartan type is obtained.
