Abstract: Let $ (V,g)$ and $ (W,h)$ be Riemannian manifolds and consider two $ {S^1}$-bundles $ X \to V$ and $ Y \to W$ with connections $ \Gamma $ on $ X$ and $ \nabla $ on $ Y$ respectively. We study maps $ X \to Y$ which induce both connections and metrics. Our study relies on Nash's implicit function theorem for infinitesimally invertible differential operators. We show, for the case when $ Y \to W = {\mathbf{C}}{P^q}$ is the Hopf bundle, that if $ 2q \geq n(n + 1)/2 + 3n$ then there exists a nonempty open subset in the space of $ {C^\infty }$-pairs $ (g,\Gamma)$ on $ V$ which can be induced from $ (h,\nabla)$ on $ {\mathbf{C}}{P^Q}$.
