Description
Derivatives of secondary characteristic classes for foliations are discussed. It will be shown that one can construct the derivatives in a parallel way to the standard construction of secondary characteristic classes, namely, by using connections and applying the ChernWeil theory. Some relationship of connections in the construction and transverse TWconnections, which is significant in the study of deformations of the GodbillonVey class and the Bott class, are also discussed.
