Spin (7)-structures in principal fibre bundles over Riemannian manifolds withG 2-structure

  • Francisco M. Cabrera


We consider principal fibre bundles with one-dimensional fiber over manifolds withG 2-structure. We define twoSpin(7)-structures on the total bundle space and find relations between the respective structures on the total space and the base. Finally we construct examples ofSpin(7)-structures using the results previously proved.
