Abstract

We construct examples of instantonic vector bundles on noncommutative spheres and having quantum SU(2) as `structure group'. Some of these spheres are endowed with an isospectral noncommutative spin geometry. The latter geometry could be used to study self-duality equations for gauge connections.
