On Deformations of Self-Dual Vector Bundles over Quaternionic Manifolds

James F. Glazebrook and Duraiswamy Sundararaman

Full-text: Open access


In this paper we survey a number of results concerned with the deformations of quaternionic structures on classes of quaternionic manifolds and the deformation theory of Hermitian bundles with self-dual connections. The deformations in question are shown to correspond to the deformation theory of complex structures and holomorphic vector bundles over an associated complex manifold referred to as a twistor space. Results related to hypercomplex and hyperkähler manifolds are also discussed.
