bundle




A map between two topological spaces A and B, where the sets f -1(b) for elements b of B (known as fibers), are all homeomorphic to a single space. The simplest example is the Möbius band, for which A is the Möbius band, B is a circle, and the fibers are homeomorphic to an interval on the real number line.
