Abstract

The vector bundle structure obtained on the second order (acceleration) tangent bundle T^2M of a smooth manifold M by means of a linear connection on the base provides an alternative way for the study of second order differential equations on manifolds of finite and infinite dimension. Second order vector fields and their integral curves provide a new way of solving a wide class of second order differential equations on Frechet manifolds and may be used also to describe geodesic curves on a Riemannian manifold. The new technique proposed is illustrated by concrete examples within the framework of Banach and Frechet spaces as well as on Lie groups.
