The central part of calculus on manifolds is usually the calculus of differential forms and the best known operators are exterior derivative, Lie derivatives, pullback and insertion operators. Differential forms are a graded commutative algebra and one may ask for the space of graded derivations of it. It was described by Frolicher and Nijenhuis in [1], who found that any such derivation is the sum of a Lie derivation Θ(K) and an insertion operator i(L) for tangent bundle valued differential… 
Gauge Theory for Fiber Bundles
Gauge theory usually investigates the space of principal connections on a principal fiber bundle (P, p, M, G) and its orbit space under the action of the gauge group (called the moduli space), which
Complete decoupling of systems of ordinary second-order differential equations
A theory is presented leading to a geometric characterization of separable systems of second-order ordinary differential equations that should provide necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of coordinates, with respect to which a given system decouples.

Geometric Structures and Differential Operators on Manifolds Having Super tangent Bundle
In this paper, we introduce the notion of a super tangent bundle of a manifold, and extend the basic notions of differential geometry such as differential forms, exterior derivation, connection,
In this paper the symmetric differential and symmetric Lie deriv- ative are introduced. Using these tools derivations of the algebra of symmetric tensors are classified. We also define a
Hamiltonian Formalism and Supersymmetry for Nonlinear Differential Equations
A self-contained exposition of Poisson structures over nonlinear partial differential equations is given. The approach is based on consideration of dn-invariant Hamiltonian formalism in the

Gauge Theory for Diffeomorphism Groups
We consider fibre bundles without structure group and develop the theory of connections, curvature, parallel transport, (nonlinear) frame bundle, the gauge group and it’s action on the space of
