### Splitting the Hopf map in two

Given the Hopf map $h:S^3\to S^2$ and an inclusion $i:S^2\hookrightarrow S^3$, the map $h\circ i:S^2\to S^2$ has mapping degree zero. Therefore, it is homotopic to the constant map and the image of ...

### Example of n-parameter family of real-analytic diffeomorphisms acting on $S^3$, constant on the Hopf fibres

I am trying to construct an n-parameter family of measure preserving real analytic diffeomorphisms on $S^3$ which preserves the $S^1$ fibres of the Hopf fibration but acts transitively on the image ...

### Visualize Fourth Homotopy Group of $S^2$

I know $\pi_4(S^2)$ is $\mathbb{Z}_2$. However, I don't know how to visualize it. For example, it is well known that $\pi_3(S^2)=\mathbb{Z}$ can be understood by Hopf Fibration. Elements in ...

### How to see the quaternionic hopf map generates the stable 3-stem?

I am looking for a direct proof that the quaternionic hopf map generates (after suspension) the 3rd stable homotopy group of spheres. There are some related MO questions, for example:
...

### “Homogeneity” of the Hopf fibration $S^7\to S^{15}\to S^8$ [closed]

My question has to do with an apparent contradiction I get regarding the Hopf fibration $S^7\to S^{15}\to S^8$. Namely, the two following statements cannot be true at the same time (but I do not see ...

### Hopf Tori in $S^3$

By means of the Hopf fibration $\pi: S^3 \rightarrow S^2$, U. Pinkall showed that every compact Riemannian surface of genus one can be conformally embedded in $S^3$.
More precisely:
Let $p$ be a ...

### The ring of integers looks like the 3-dimensional sphere viewed as the Hopf fibration

This question is based on the following phrase:
"In a sense, $\textrm{Spec} \ \mathbf{Z}$ looks topologically like a 3-dimensional sphere viewed as the Hopf fibration over $\mathbf{S}^2$."
See page ...

### Hopf fibration inside the retraction of R^4 minus line -> S^2?

This was inspired by this question.
Let $Y = {\mathbb R}^4 \setminus$a coordinate line, which retracts to ${\mathbb R}^3 \setminus$a point, which retracts to $S^2$.
What is an explicit immersion ...

### Simplicial Model of Hopf Map?

The Hopf fibration is a famous map S3 --> S2 with fiber S1, which is the generator in pi_3(S2). We can model this map in terms simplicial sets by taking the singular simplicial sets of these spaces ...
