The author is concerned with the geometry of incidence of points and lines, over an arbitrary field, and unencumbered by metrics or continuity (or even betweenness). The treatment of these themes blends the descriptive with the axiomatic.

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.
