This chapter brings together the basic properties of fibre bundles, fibrations, and vector bundles required in surgery theory. The tangent and normal bundles of a manifold are introduced. The bundle-theoretic interpretation of the Hopf invariant and J-homomorphism in homotopy theory is also discussed.
