    added these pointers:


    M-theory on HP^2, hence on a quaternion-Kähler manifold of dimension 8 with holonomy Sp(2).Sp(1), is considered in

    and argued to be dual to M-theory on G2-manifolds in three different ways, which in turn is argued to lead to a a possible proof of confinement in the resulting 4d effective field theory (see there for more).
