On the quaternionic Heisenberg group. (English) Zbl 0613.53016
Let \(M_ Q\) be the compact nilmanifold defined as \(M_ Q=\Gamma_ Q\setminus H_ Q\), where \(H_ Q\) is the quaternionic Heisenberg group and \(\Gamma_ Q\) is its subgroup of matrices with integer coordinates. It is proved that \(M_ Q\) does not admit either generalized Hopf or symplectic structures. However, certain semi-Kähler structures [A. Gray and L. M. Hervella, Ann. Mat. Pura Appl., IV. Ser. 123, 35-58 (1980; Zbl 0444.53032)] are constructed on \(M_ Q\), one of them being non-Hermitian and the others Hermitian. The Frölicher spectral sequence associated to one of these structures is analyzed.
