A map is a fibration if and only if there is a continuous function which given a path, , in and a point, , lying above , returns a lift of , starting at .
Note that if we restrict to the boundary of , we do not get a fibration. Although we may still lift any path to begin at a prescribed point, we cannot make this assignment continuously.
Another class of fibrations are found in fibre bundles.
