Abstract
Abstract

Let Mn be an n-dimensional closed hypersurface with constant mean curvature H satisfying |H| ≤ ϵ(n) in a unit sphere Sn+1(1), n ≤ 8 and S the square of the length of the second fundamental form of M. There exists a constant δ(n, H) > 0, which depends only on n and H such that if S0SS0 + δ(n, H), then SS0 and M is isometric to a Clifford hypersurface, where ϵ(n) is a sufficiently small constant depending on n and .
