Abstract

After DDK returned to India, he kept up his contacts with well-known European mathematicians such as T. Levi-Civita and É. Cartan, who also communicated his papers to professional journals. This paper appears to have been sent to Élie Cartan prior to publication, and the ensuing correspondence resulted in this paper by Kosambi and a note by Cartan being published back-to-back in Zeitschrift (see the next chapter). Along with a later paper by S.S. Chern in the Bulletin des Sciences Mathématiques, 63, 206–212 (1939) these papers lay the foundations of the Kosambi-Cartan-Chern theory.
