Andrzej is a very common name in Poland.

And is the "Google Groups" posting account
0VIq4g0AAAALIdXtcD0twijLWH3jqv1L (as found
in the "InjectionInfo:" headers both of this
latest post and of "andrzej"'s posts throughout
the thread "How to define a vector without coordinate
system?") also very common in Poland?

Let us consider nonlinear equation
(y')^2=f(x,y)
the expression
f(x,y)dx^2dy^2=0
isn't a differential form.
Then what is it?

Try the two differential forms sqrt(f(x,y)) dx  dy and
sqrt(f(x,y)) dx  dy (when f(x,y) > 0)

Is it possible to create equivalent differential form in this case?

This DE is equivalent to y' = 0 (if you're working over the reals).

Solution of differential equation
y'=f(x,y)
Is equivalent to the solution of the equation
f(x,y)dxdy=0
which is actually a differential form.

Let us consider nonlinear equation
(y')^2=f(x,y)
the expression
f(x,y)dx^2dy^2=0
isn't a differential form.
Then what is it?

Let us consider an equation
Sin(y')+y'=0
Is it possible to create equivalent differential form in this case?
What about PDE?

I will be gratefully for any references
which are related to relation between
nonlinear differential equations and differential forms.
Regards,
Andrzej
