Integrability conditions for differential systems

Résumé
In mathematics, certain systems of partial differential equations are usefully formulated, from the point of view of their underlying geometric and algebraic structure, in terms of a system of differential forms. The idea is to take advantage of the way a differential form restricts to a submanifold, and the fact that this restriction is compatible with the exterior derivative. This is one possible approach to certain over-determined systems, for example, including Lax pairs of integrable systems. A Pfaffian system is specified by 1-forms alone, but the theory includes other types of example of differential system. To elaborate, a Pfaffian system is a set of 1-forms on a smooth manifold (which one sets equal to 0 to find solutions to the system). Given a collection of differential 1-forms \textstyle\alpha_i, i=1,2,\dots, k on an \textstyle n-dimensional manifold M, an integral manifold is an immersed (not necessarily embedded) submanifold whose
