Topology occupies a vital place within the arithmetic of this present day. the most beneficial rules to be brought long ago sixty years is the idea that of fibre package, which supplies a suitable framework for learning differential geometry and masses else. Fibre bundles are examples of the type of buildings studied in fibrewise topology. simply as homotopy concept arises from topology, so fibrewise homotopy the­ ory arises from fibrewise topology. during this monograph we offer an summary of fibrewise homotopy conception because it stands at the present. it truly is was hoping that this can stimulate additional study. The literature at the topic is already relatively large yet essentially there's a good deal extra to be performed. Efforts were made to strengthen basic theories of which traditional homotopy idea, equivariant homotopy idea, fibrewise homotopy concept and so on can be detailed instances. for instance, Baues [7] and, extra lately, Dwyer and Spalinski [53], have awarded such normal theories, derived from an past thought of Quillen, yet none of those appear to offer rather the appropriate framework for our reasons. we now have most well-liked, during this monograph, to improve fibre clever homotopy concept roughly ab initio, assuming just a simple wisdom of standard homotopy conception, not less than within the early sections, yet our target has been to maintain the exposition kind of self-contained.

7 Fibrewise fibre bundles 37 The Milnor construction Let G be a fibrewise open group, over a base space B. Following Milnor [113j, in the ordinary theory, a countably numerable fibrewise G-bundle can be constructed as follows. We regard the cylinder A = B x [ as a fibrewise space under the first projection, and denote the second projection by a : A -+ [. ·· E Gb. ° Restrict attention to those sequences such that a(a n ) = for all but a finite number of indices n and such that E a(a n ) = 1. Impose on this fibrewise set the fibrewise equivalence relation in which two such sequences (al, gl , ...

Then Ec becomes a fibrewise space, such that for each fibrewise space K a fibrewise function f : K -+ Ec is continuous if and only if each function an 0 f and gn 0 (f I (a 0 an 0 f)-I (0,1)) is continuous. Now consider the fibrewise action rc : Ec XB G -+ Ec of G on Ec given by rc([al,gl,a2,g2, ... ]. We denote the fibrewise orbit space Ec/G by Xc and the natural projection by pc. The fibrewise map an is invariant and so induces a fibrewise map an 0 (PC)-1 : Xc -+ A. The open sets {an 0 Pc/ 0 a-I (0, I)} form a countably numerable covering of Xc, and Ec is fibrewise G-trivial over each member of the covering.
