This talk is devoted to our recent findings [1, 2] about differential equations that are compatible with the group operation in a Lie group, or a Lie group bundle. Such equations are group connections. We characterize the space of group connections on a group bundle as an affine space modeled over the vector space of 1-forms with values cocycles in the Lie algebra bundle of the aforementioned group bundle. We show that group connections satisfy the Ambrose-Singer theorem and that group bundles can be seen as a particular case of associated bundles realizing group connections as associated connections. We give a construction of the Moduli space of group connections with fixed base and fiber, as an space of representations of the fundamental group of the base.
