fiber bundle

[′fī·bər ‚bən·dəl]
(mathematics)
A bundle whose total space is a G-space X, whose base is the homomorphic image of the orbit space of X, and whose fibers are isomorphic to the orbits of points in the base space under the action of G.
(optics)
A flexible bundle of glass or other transparent fibers, parallel to each other, used in fiber optics to transmit a complete image from one end of the bundle to the other.

fiber bundle

(1) A set of adjacent optical fibers running in parallel and adhered together. It is used for transmitting light to brighten an area as well as transmitting whole images, but not for digital communications.

(2) A collection of optical fibers.
