In Theorem 3.8 we reformulate the projective metrizability problem for a spray in terms of a first-order partial differential operator P₁ and a set of algebraic conditions on semi-basic 1-forms. We discuss the formal integrability of P₁ using two sufficient conditions provided by Cartan-Kähler theorem. We prove in Theorem 4.2 that the symbol of P₁ is involutive and hence one of the two conditions is always satisfied. While discussing the second condition, in Theorem 4.3 we prove that there is only one obstruction to the formal integrability of P₁, and this obstruction is due to the curvature tensor of the induced nonlinear connection. When the curvature obstruction is satisfied, the projective metrizability problem reduces to the discussion of the algebraic conditions, which as we show are always satisfied in the analytic case. Based on these results, we recover all classes of sprays that are known to be projectively metrizable: flat sprays, isotropic sprays, and arbitrary sprays on 1- and 2-dimensional manifolds. We provide examples of sprays that are projectively metrizable without being Finsler metrizable. uk_UA dc.description.sponsorship The work of IB was supported by the Romanian National Authority for Scientific Research, uk_UA CNCS UEFISCDI, project number PN-II-RU-TE-2011-3-0017.
