Theb-boundary of tensor bundles over a space-time

In [1] it was shown how to attach a boundary to any space-time. In the present paper a boundary is constructed for any bundle associated with the frame bundle of a space time. In such a way limits of tensor fields at boundary points of a space-time are defined. Using this we show that the Lorentz metric has always a unique continuous extension to theb-boundary of the space-time.
