Abstract: Given a principal $SU(2)$-bundle $\pi \colon P\to M$, the structure of differential forms on $J^1(P)$ which are invariant under the natural representation of the gauge algebra of $P$, is analyzed.

Keywords: Automorphism of a principal bundle, bundle of connections, contact forms, gauge algebra, gauge group, infinitesimal contact transformation, invariant differential forms, jet bundle
