    polished and expanded Ehresmann connection

    I have improved (hopefully) the section on the definition via horizontal subspaces at Ehresmann connection. On the other hand, I think (and wikipedia agrees) that the statement about the terminology is wrong at two places. One is the statement in the entry that the Ehresmann connection must be on a principal bundle (but must be on a fiber bundle) to be called such and another is suspicious phrase “Cartan-Ehresmann connection”, in my opinion Cartan connection is by the definition in a smaller generality then Ehresmann.

    Finally the Ehresmann connections on a principal and its associated bundles are in 1-1 correspondence: If T HPTPT^H P\subset T P is the smooth horizontal distrubution of subspaces defining the principal connection on a principal GG-bundle PP over XX, where GG is a Lie group and FF a smooth left GG-space, then consider the total space P× GFP\times_G F of the associated bundle with typical fiber FF. Then, for a fixed fFf\in F one defines a map ρ f:PP× GF\rho_f : P\to P\times_G F assigning the class [p,f][p,f] to pPp\in P. If (T pρ f)(T p HP)=:T [p,f] HP× GF(T_p \rho_f)(T^H_p P) =: T_{[p,f]}^H P\times_G F defines the horizontal subspace T [p,f] HP× GFT [p,f]P× GFT_{[p,f]}^H P\times_G F\subset T_{[p,f]} P\times_G F, the collection of such subspaces does not depend on the choice of (p,f)(p,f) in the class [p,f][p,f], and the correspondence pT [p,f] HP× GFp\mapsto T_{[p,f]}^H P\times_G F is a connection on the associated bundle P× GFXP\times_G F\to X. I added now this reasoning to the entry as well.

    I have added to Ehresmann connection a pointer to the formalization of flat Ehresmann connections in cohesive homotopy type theory.

    I have just posted a little more chat about this here to the nnCafé.

    Even if you go to the café and find that day’s entry, the follow up gives the same error. The problem is thus in the Café.

    but when I checked back the problem did not seem to exist any more. Strange.

    It does again. Though the main page works.

    There is no problem for me at the moment.
