## The Seiberg-Witten Equations and Applications to the Topology of Smooth Four-Manifolds. (MN-44) |

The recent introduction of the Seiberg-Witten invariants of smooth four-manifolds has revolutionized the study of those manifolds. The invariants are gauge-theoretic in nature and are close cousins of the much-studied SU(2)-invariants defined over fifteen years ago by Donaldson. On a practical level, the new invariants have proved to be more powerful and have led to a vast generalization of earlier results. This book is an introduction to the Seiberg-Witten invariants. The work begins with a review of the classical material on Spin "This book provides an excellent introduction to the recently discovered Seilberg-Witten invariants for smooth closed oriented 4-mainifolds."
