Abstract

Let G be a compact connected simple Lie group. Any principal G–bundle over S4 is classified by an integer k π3(G), and we denote the corresponding gauge group by Gk(G). We prove that Gk(PU(3)) G(PU(3)) if and only if (24,k) = (24,), and Gk(PSp(2)) (p)G(PSp(2)) for any prime p if and only if (40,k) = (40,), where (m,n) is the gcd of integers m,n.
