We show that the moduli space of all smooth fibrations of a 3-sphere by oriented simple closed curves has the homotopy type of a disjoint union of a pair of 2-spheres, which coincides with the homotopy type of the finite-dimensional subspace of Hopf fibrations. In the course of the proof, we present a pair of entangled fiber bundles in which the diffeomorphism group of the 3-sphere is the total space of the first bundle, whose fiber is the total space of the second bundle, whose base space is the diffeomorphism group of the 2-sphere. This is joint work with D. DeTurck, H. Gluck, M. Merling and J. Yang. Speaker(s): Leandro Lichtenfelz (University of Pennsylvania)
