### Abstract

The space D_{under(λ, -) ; μ}, where under(λ, -) = (λ_{1}, ..., λ_{m}), of m-ary differential operators acting on weighted densities is a (m + 1)-parameter family of modules over the Lie algebra of vector fields. For almost all the parameters, we construct a canonical isomorphism between the space D_{under(λ, -) ; μ} and the corresponding space of symbols as s l (2)-modules. This yields to the notion of the s l (2)-equivariant symbol calculus for m-ary differential operators. We show, however, that these two modules cannot be isomorphic as s l (2)-modules for some particular values of the parameters. Furthermore, we use the symbol map to show that all modules D_{under(λ, -) ; μ}^{2} (i.e., the space of second-order operators) are isomorphic to each other, except for a few modules called singular.
