Abstract: In this lecture，
we discuss a class of homogeneous Finsler metrics of vanishing $S$curvature on a $(4n+3)$dimensional sphere.
We find a second order ordinary differential equation that characterizes Einstein metrics with constant Ricci curvature $1$ among this class.
Using this equation we show that there are infinitely many homogeneous Einstein metrics on $S^{4n+3}$ of constant Ricci curvature $1$ and vanishing $S$curvature. They contain
the canonical metric on $S^{4n+3}$ of constant sectional curvature $1$ and the Einstein metric of nonconstant sectional curvature given by Jensen in 1973.
