Isn't the curvature of a connection on P supposed to be a form on the base B? In which case, how do we interpret the formula? How does this relate to the discussion in Connection (vector bundle)? gorlim (talk) 22:40, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

About merge Flat vector bundle into this article.[edit]

I'm opposed to merge Flat vector bundle into this article. Because Curvature form is distinguished with Flat vector bundle, which is called flat if the curvature form of its base manifold is vanishing.--Enyokoyama (talk) 13:45, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

That's certainly a valid point. The problem is redirecting flat connection to flat vector bundle: this is a redirect from a topic to its special case, not a good idea. The merger is one way to fix this, but there are other opinions like renaming the latter. -- Taku (talk) 23:59, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
