The theory of strongly algebraic vector bundles has attracted the attention of several mathematicians. However, only in some special cases is it understood when a given continuous vector bundle over a real algebraic variety is C0 isomorphic to a strongly algebraic one (cf. [3], [4], [5], [10], [11], [12], [19], [23], [26]). In this paper necessary and sufficient conditions are given for a continuous vector bundle over a compact affine nonsingular real alge- braic surface or threefold to be C° isomorphic to a strongly algebraic vector bundle. The result is used to compare algebraic and topological K-theory. The paper is organized as follows. The main results are formulated in Section 1 and proved in Section 4. The
