# Nonintegrable almost complex structures

The Newlander-Nirenberg theorem states that any Integrable Almost Complex manifold is a complex manifold. I am looking for natural examples of complex structures that are not integrable.

I changed the title by adding "almost", because nonintegrable complex structure is an oxymoron. Also, I added some relevant tags. –  t.b. Jun 23 '11 at 3:25

The sphere $S^6$ naturally sits inside of the imaginary octonians $\operatorname{Im}\mathbb{O}$. At the point $p\in S^6$, multiplication by $p$ on $T_p S^6 = p^\bot \subseteq \operatorname{Im}\mathbb{O}$ defines an almost complex structure.
Isn't it much more common to use "octonions" instead of "octonians" (Google gives 356K vs 28.3K hits)? Also, it might be worth pointing out that the existence of an integrable almost complex structure on $S^6$ is a famous open problem. –  t.b. Jun 23 '11 at 2:58
