natural operator; Weil bundle
We give a classification of all linear natural operators transforming $p$-vectors (i.e., skew-symmetric tensor fields of type $(p,0)$) on $n$-dimensional manifolds $M$ to tensor fields of type $(q,0)$ on $T^AM$, where $T^A$ is a Weil bundle, under the condition that $p\ge 1$, $n\ge p$ and $n\ge q$. The main result of the paper states that, roughly speaking, each linear natural operator lifting $p$-vectors to tensor fields of type $(q,0)$ on $T^A$ is a sum of operators obtained by permuting the indices of the tensor products of linear natural operators lifting $p$-vectors to tensor fields of type $(p,0)$ on $T^A$ and canonical tensor fields of type $(q-p,0)$ on $T^A$.
