More precisely, using the quaternonic Hopf fibration and the explicit integral representation of the heat kernel on the complex projective space $$$P_{2n+1}(ℂ)$$$, as well as an integral representation of Jacobi polynomials in terms of Gegenbauer polynomials, we give an explicit integral representation of the heat kernel on the $$$n$$$-quaternionic projective space. We also establish an explicit series expansion of the heat kernel in terms of the Jacobi polynomials. Moreover, we derive an explicit formula of the heat kernel on the sphere $$$S^4$$$.}}
