SO(3)-Structures on 8-manifolds

By Simon G. Chiossi and Óscar Maciá


We study Riemannian 8-manifolds with an infinitesimal action of SO(3) by which each tangent space breaks into irreducible spaces of dimensions 3 and 5. The relationship with quaternionic, almost product- and PSU-geometry is thoroughly explained using representation-theoretical arguments.Comment: 19 pages, 2 figure
