On quasi connections on fibred manifolds

  • Paul Popescu
Part of the Mathematics and Its Applications book series (MAIA, volume 350)


The purpose of this paper is to define a quasi-connection on a fibred manifold and its curvature. The constructions follow the ideas from some previous papers of the author [8, 9] where a nonlinear q.c. on a vector bundle and its curvature are defined. Some objects defined there (relative tangent spaces and almost Lie structures) are defined on some v.b.s defined here; they are used in the con struct ions or to give some new interpretations.
