Description
Any Spin(7)-manifold admits a metric connection \nabla^c with totally skew-symmetric torsion T^c preserving the underlying structure. We classify those with \nabla^c-parallel T^c\neq0 and non-Abelian isotropy algebra iso(T^c)<spin(7). These are isometric to either Riemannian products or homogeneous naturally reductive spaces, each admitting two \nabla^c-parallel spinor fields.
