  • The aim of this paper is to extend basic understanding of Engel structures through developing geometric constructions which are canonical to a certain degree and the dynamics of Cauchy characteristics in the transverse spaces which may exhibit elliptic, parabolic, or hyperbolic natures in typical cases.
