Gauge theory and the topology of four-manifolds

Author: Robert Friedman; John W Morgan
Publisher: American Mathematical Society ; Providence, R.I., ©1998.
Series: IAS/Park City mathematics series, 4.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:

Offers a perspective on how 4-manifold theory was studied before the discovery of modern-day Seiberg-Witten theory. This book predates Donaldson's applications of the subject to 4-manifold topology,  Read more...
