Duality conditions for two- and four-forms in eight dimensions are related. Dual fields--octonionic instantons--solve an 8D generalization of the Yang-Mills equation. Modifying the ADHM construction of 4D instantons, we find general $k$-instanton 8D solutions which depends on $16k-7$ effective parameters. Description Reference: Phys.Lett.
