Some Applications of Vector Bundle Theory

Part of the Mathematics and Its Applications book series (MAIA, volume 447)


Here we describe some problems where vector bundles appear in a natural way. We do not pretend to give a complete list but rather they correspond to the author’s interest. Nevertheless, we hope that these examples will demonstrate the usefulness of vector bundle theory as a geometric technique.
