As before, suppose that E is a fibre bundle with structure group G. In the special case when G has a free and transitive left action on F ′, so that F ′ is a principal homogeneous space for the left action of G on itself, then the associated bundle E ′ is called the principal G-bundle associated to the fibre bundle E. If, moreover, the new fibre F ′ is identified with G ( so that F ′ inherits a right action of G as well as a left action ), then the right action of G on F ′ induces a right action of G on E ′.
