# CANONICAL FRAMES FOR DISTRIBUTIONS OF ODD RANK AND CORANK 2 WITH MAXIMAL FIRST KRONECKER INDEX

@article{Krynski2010CANONICALFF, title={CANONICAL FRAMES FOR DISTRIBUTIONS OF ODD RANK AND CORANK 2 WITH MAXIMAL FIRST KRONECKER INDEX}, author={Wojciech Kry'nski and I. Zelenko}, journal={arXiv: Differential Geometry}, year={2010} }

We construct canonical frames and find all maximally symmetric models for a natural generic class of corank 2 distributions on manifolds of odd dimension greater or equal to 7. This class of distributions is characterized by the following two conditions: the pencil of 2-forms associated with the corresponding Pfaffian system has the maximal possible first Kronecker index and the Lie square of the subdistribution generated by the kernels of all these 2-forms is equal to the original distribution…
