On spinc[sic]-invariants of four-manifolds

Abstract:

The spinc-invariants for a compact smooth simply-connected oriented four-manifold, as defined by Pidstrigach and Tyurin, are studied in this thesis. Unlike the Donaldson polynomial invariants, they are defined by cutting down the moduli space M' of '1-instantons', which is the subspace of the moduli space M of anti-self-dual connections parametrizing coupled (spinc) Dirac operators with non-trivial kernel.

Our main goal is t...
