==Definition==
Let <math>M</math> be a [[differential manifold]], <math>E</math> a [[vector bundle]] on <math>M</math>. Let <math>\gamma:[0,1] \to M</math> be a [[smooth curve]] in <math>M</math>. Let <math>D/dt</math> denote a [[connection along a curve|connection along]] <math>\gamma<math>. The transport along <math>\gamma</math> defined by <math>D/dt</math> maps <math>T_{\gamma(0)}(M)</math> to the space of [[vector field along a curve|vector field]]s along <math>\gamma<math>, denoted in symbols as:
<math>v \mapsto \phi_t(v) (t \in [0,1])</math>
