# Vector Bundles
Associating to a holomorphic vector bundle its sheaf of sections defines a canonical bijection between the set of holomorphic vector bundles of rank and the set of locally free -modules of rank .
# Constructions of Vector Bundles
# Pullback Bundles
Let be a vector bundle with fibre , and let be a continous map. The pullback bundle is defined to be

Let be a vector bundle over a topological space , and consider a point . The inclusion map gives rise to the induced bundle , which is the same as the trivial bundle , where is the fibre over the point .
More generally, if is the inclusion map of some subspace into , then is the restriction of from to .
