Abstract. We briefly report on our recent results regarding the introduction of a notion of a q-quaternion and the construction of instanton solutions of a would-be deformed su(2) Yang-Mills theory on the corresponding SOq(4)-covariant quantum space. As the solutions depend on some noncommuting parameters, this indicates that the moduli space of a complete theory will be a noncommutative manifold.
