3-Manifold Seminar: Seiberg-Witten Invariants and Hyperbolic Manifolds
Seminar | March 12 | 3:40-5 p.m. | 736 Evans Hall
Yue Zhang, UC Berkeley
We’ll introduce some preliminaries such as Hodge theory and spin structure for Seiberg-Witten invariants on 4-manifolds. Then a nice nonlinear PDE on the spin bundle of 4-manifolds will give rise to a moduli space related to Seiberg-Witten invariants. We will also discuss some related results of hyperbolic manifolds.
