# On moduli spaces for finite-order jets of linear connections

@article{Gordillo2015OnMS, title={On moduli spaces for finite-order jets of linear connections}, author={Adri{\'a}n Gordillo and Jos'e Navarro}, journal={arXiv: Differential Geometry}, year={2015} }

We describe the ringed-space structure of moduli spaces of jets of linear connections (at a point) as orbit spaces of certain linear representations of the general linear group.
Then, we use this fact to prove that the only (scalar) differential invariants associated to linear connections are constant functions, as well as to recover various expressions appearing in the literature regarding the Poincar\'{e} series of these moduli spaces.
