Graded bundles are a particularly nice class of graded manifolds and represent a natural generalization of vector bundles. By exploiting the formalism of supermanifolds to describe Lie algebroids, we define the notion of a weighted A-connection on a graded bundle. In a natural sense weighted A-connections are adapted to the basic geometric structure of a graded bundle in the same way as linear A-connections are adapted to the structure of a vector bundle. This notion generalizes directly to multi-graded bundles and in particular we present the notion of a bi-weighted A-connection on a double vector bundle. We prove the existence of such adapted connections and use them to define (quasi-)actions of Lie algebroids on graded bundles. [less ▲]

We present the notion of a filtered bundle as a generalization of a graded bundle. In particular, we weaken the necessity of the transformation laws for local coordinates to exactly respect the weight of the coordinates by allowing more general polynomial transformation laws. The key examples of such bundles include affine bundles and various jet bundles, both of which play fundamental roles in geometric mechanics and classical field theory. We also present the notion of double filtered bundles which provide natural generalizations of double vector bundles and double affine bundles. Furthermore, we show that the linearization of a filtered bundle — which can be seen as a partial polarization of the admissible changes of local coordinates — is well defined. [less ▲]
