In mathematics, an algebraic vector bundle is a vector bundle for which all the transition maps are algebraic functions.

Serre' theorem states that the category of algebraic vector bundles on an algebraic variety X is anti-equivalent to the category of locally free sheaves on X.

All SU(2)-instantons over the sphere S^4 are algebraic vector bundles.[citation needed]
