General Fibre Bundles

  • Chapter

Part of the Graduate Texts in Mathematics book series (GTM,volume 20)

Abstract

A fibre bundle is a bundle with an additional structure derived from the action of a topological group on the fibres. In the next chapter the notions of fibre bundle and vector bundle are related. As with vector bundles, a fibre bundle has so much structure that there is a homotopy classification theorem for fibre bundles.
