Any sphere S n admits a metric of constant sectional curvature. These canonical metrics are homogeneous and Einstein, that is the Ricci curvature is a constant multiple of the metric. The spheres S 4m+3 , m 1, are known to have another Sp(m + 1)-homogeneous Einstein metric discovered by Jensen [Jen73]. In addition, S 15 has a third Spin(9)-invariant homogeneous Einstein metric discovered by Bourguignon and Karcher [BK78]. In 1982 Ziller proved that these are the only homogeneous Einstein metrics on spheres [Zil82]. .
