• Problem 1 is shows differentiable homogeneous maps between vector spaces are automatically linear.
  • Problem 2 is about building a parallel frame along a curve.
  • Problems 3 and 4 explores how to create new connections from old (we will cover this more systematically later).
  • Problem 5 is more on our favourite connection on $TS^m$ from the previous problem sheet.
  • Problem 6 is about reducing a connection.
  • Problem 7 shows how connections behave like tensor derivations.
  • Problem 8 gives another way of thinking about flat connections. Remark: If you are not familiar with the universal cover, just skip this question.
  • Problem 9 discusses left-invariant connections on Lie groups.
