Info tab content
The aim of this course is to give an introduction to smooth 4-manifolds. Topics include elliptic surfaces, symplectic 4-manifolds, the symplectic sum, the knot surgery construction of Fintushel and Stern, Seiberg-Witten invariants, and exotic structures on simply-connected 4-manifolds with small Euler characteristics.
