Abstract

In his work on projective connections, Cartan discusses his theory of second order differential euqtions . It is the aim here to look at how a normal projective connection can be constructed and how it relates to the geometry of a single second order differential equation. The calculations are presented in some detail in order to highlight the usage of gauge conditions.
