nLab complex projective 3-space




Complex projective 3-space P 3\mathbb{C}P^3 is the complex projective space P n\mathbb{C}P^n for n=3n = 3.


Coset space realization

Complex projective space has the following coset space-realizations:

Calabi-Penrose fibration

twistor spaceCalabi-Penrose fibration


Complex projective 3-space is conceived in the guise as the twistor space of 4d Minkowski spacetime in

Discussion of P 3\mathbb{C}P^3 as the domain of the twistor fibration and with an eye towards Yang-Mills theory:
