Note this is a 2 hour talk.

 In this lecture, we will look at the notion of crossed product by a group action. The example of the non commutative torus will be considered in detail. The analog of vector fields, vector bundle and connection will be introduced from this example. Some example of connection will be described and the curvature will be computed.
