Abstract

We study the relationship between the dimensions of euclidean spheres which admit a nonconstant homogeneous quadratic map between them. Givenm (respectivelyn), we determine the least (respectively greatest) possible value ofn (respectivelym) for which there exists a nonconstant homogeneous quadratic mapSmSn.
