We give the widest geometrical generalization of the notion of
connection in fiber spaces that allows one to adequately construct the
geometry of ordinary differential systems of any order.
In this area, there is a theory of nonlinear stable connections
developed by the first author.
Here we apply it to fourth-order systems.
