Principal fibrations over noncommutative spheres by:1 (Source: Crossref)

    We present examples of noncommutative four-spheres that are base spaces of SU(2)-principal bundles with noncommutative seven-spheres as total spaces. The noncommutative coordinate algebras of the four-spheres are generated by the entries of a projection which is invariant under the action of SU(2). We give conditions for the components of the Connes–Chern character of the projection to vanish but the second (the top) one. The latter is then a non-zero Hochschild cycle that plays the role of the volume form for the noncommutative four-spheres.
