"Introduction to principal bundles"

In this talk we will cover the basic theory of principal bundles and their relation to vector bundles via the frame and associated bundle constructions. We will define connections on principal bundles and structure group reductions, and then if time permits introduce the groups Spin(n) and spin structures on manifolds.
