Beschreibung

Beginning with the groundbreaking work of Donaldson in about 1980 it became clear that gauge-theoretic invariants of principal bundles and connections were an important tool in the study of smooth four-dimensional manifolds. Donaldson showed the importance of the moduli space of antiself-dual connections. The next fifteen years saw an explosion of work in this area leading to computations of Donaldson polynomial invariants for a wide class of four-dimensional manifolds, especially algebraic surfaces.
