bundle functor; connection; natural operator
We classify all bundle functors $G$ admitting natural operators transforming connections on a fibered manifold $Y\rightarrow M$ into connections on $GY\rightarrow M$. Then we solve a similar problem for natural operators transforming connections on $Y\rightarrow M$ into connections on $GY\rightarrow Y$.
