Title: Suspending the Cartan Embedding of HPn Through Spindles and Generators of Homotopy Groups
Author: Duran, CE
Puttmann, T
Rigas, A
Abstract: We provide an equivariant suspension of the Cartan embedding of the symmetric space S4n+3 -> HPn curved right arrow Sp(n + 1); this construction furnishes geometric generators of the homotopy group of pi(4n+6)Sp(n + 1). We study the topology and geometry of the image of this generator; in particular we show that it is a spindle, minimal with respect to the biinvariant metric from Sp(n + 1). This spindle also admits a different metric of positive curvature away from the cone singular point.
