    • Abstract


      In this paper we show that a substantial Riemannian submersion ofS15 with 7-dimensional fibres is congruent to the standard Hopf fibration. As a consequence we prove a slightly weak form of the diameter rigidity theorem for the Cayley plane which is considerably stronger than the very recent radius rigidity theorem of Wilhelm.
