abstract = {If (M,g) is a Riemannian manifold then there is the well-known base preserving vector bundle isomorphism TM → T* M given by v → g(v,−) between the tangent TM and the cotangent T* M bundles of M. In the present note first we generalize this isomorphism to the one JrTM → JrTM between the r-th order prolongation JrTM of tangent TM and the r-th order prolongation JrT M of cotangent TM bundles of M. Further we describe all base preserving vector bundle maps DM(g) : JrTM → JrT* M depending on a Riemannian metric g in terms of natural (in g) tensor fields on M},
