Abstract

The circle group G is said to act pseudofreely if it is not free and if every orbit is one-dimensional and if the isotropy group is the identity except on isolated exceptional orbits where the isotropy group is the finite cyclic group Z(k), k > 1. We consider differentiable actions of this kind on homotopy seven spheres and classify all such actions. As a corollary, it follows that there can be any finite number of exceptional orbits, in contrast to the linear case where there can be at most four.
