On the space of maps inducing isomorphic connections
Annales de l'Institut Fourier, Volume 32 (1982) no. 1, pp. 263-276.

Let ω be the universal connection on the bundle EU(n)BU(n). Given a principal U(n)-bundle PM with connection A, we determine the homotopy type of the space of maps φ of M into BU(n) such that (φ + EU(n),φ + ω) is isomorphic to (P,A). Here φ + denotes pull-back.

Soit ω la connexion universelle du fibré EU(n)BU(n). Étant donné un U(n)-fibré principal PM muni d’une connexion A, on détermine le type homotopique de l’espace des applications de M dans BU(n) telles que (φ + EU(n),φ + ω) soit isomorphe à (P,A). (On désigne par φ + l’image réciproque.)
