Abstract: In studying the singularities of type $ {A_k}$ of smooth maps between manifolds $ N$ and $ P$ the Boardman manifold $ {\sum ^{i,1, \ldots,10}}$ in $ {J^\infty }\,(N,P)$ has been very useful. We will construct the submanifolds $ \sum {D_k}$ and $ \Sigma {E_k}$ in $ {J^\infty }\,(N,P)$ playing the similar role for singularities $ {D_k}$ and $ {E_k}$ and study their properties in its process.
