An exterior differential system is a system of equations on a manifold defined by equating to zero a number of exterior differential forms. This book gives a treatment of exterior differential systems. It includes both the theory and applications.

A comprehensive textbook on all basic structures from the theory of jets. It begins with an introduction to differential geometry. After reduction each problem to a finite order setting, the remaining discussion is based on properties of jet spaces.

The authors present the results of their development of a theory of the geometry of differential equations, focusing especially on Lagrangians and Poincare-Cartan forms. They also cover certain aspects of the theory of exterior differential systems.
