Wrinkling (and, relatedly, surgery of singularities) is one of the main tools in the theory of h-principles. In Contact Topology, wrinkling is best known for its role in the study of legendrians: E. Murphy's h-principle for loose legendrians and D. Álvarez-Gavela's simplification of front singularities both rely on it. Just like the space of 1-jets of functions is endowed with a canonical contact structure, higher jet spaces are endowed with other canonical distributions. I will report on joint work with L. Toussaint in which we use wrinkling to construct submanifolds of jet spaces tangent to these canonical distributions (generalising thus the study of legendrians). I will pay particular attention to explaining how the contact case differs from the general setup.
