Each great circle fibration of the unit 3-sphere in 4-space can be identified with a subset of the Grassmann manifold of oriented 2-planes in 4-space by associating each great circle fiber with the 2-plane it lies in. This Grassmann manifold can be identified with the space S2 X 52. H. Gluck and F. Warner, in Great circle fibrations of the three sphere, Duke Math. J. 50 (1983), 107-132, have shown that the subsets of this Grassmann manifold which correspond to great circle fibrations can be…

Germs of fibrations of spheres by great circles always extend to the whole sphere
In a 1983 paper with Frank Warner, we proved that the space of all great circle fibrations of the 3-sphere S^3 deformation retracts to the subspace of Hopf fibrations, and so has the homotopy type of
Deformation and Extension of Fibrations of Spheres by Great Circles
In a 1983 paper with Frank Warner, we proved that the space of all great circle fibrations of the 3-sphere S 3 deformation retracts to the subspace of Hopf fibrations, and so has the homotopy type of
Skew Hopf fibrations
We introduce class FR(S2+1) of analytic fibrations of sphere S2n+1,n≥1, by great circles for which there exists a tensor R, with the algebraic properties of a curvature tensor, such that 1) for
Rigidity of the Hopf fibration
In this paper, we study minimal maps between euclidean spheres. The Hopf fibrations provide explicit examples of such minimal maps. Moreover, their corresponding graphs have second fundamental form
Great sphere foliations and manifolds with curvature bounded above
The survey is devoted to Toponogov's conjecture, that {\it if a complete simply connected Riemannian manifold with sectional curvature $\le 4$ and injectivity radius $\ge \pi/2$ has extremal diameter
Dual curves and pseudoholomorphic curves
Abstract. A notion of dual curve for pseudoholomorphic curves in 4-manifolds turns out to be possible only if the notion of almost complex structure structure is slightly generalized. The resulting
Twistor theory of pseudoholomorphic curves
A twistor theory of pseudoholomorphic curves in 4–manifolds turns out to be possible only if the notion of almost complex structure structure is slightly generalized. The resulting structure is as
