    • Abstract


      Let 𝑀 be a $C^\infty$ manifold and 𝐺 a Lie a group. Let $E_G$ be a $C^\infty$ principal 𝐺-bundle over 𝑀. There is a fiber bundle $\mathcal{C}(E_G)$ over 𝑀 whose smooth sections correspond to the connections on $E_G$. The pull back of $E_G$ to $\mathcal{C}(E_G)$ has a tautological connection. We investigate the curvature of this tautological connection.
