Homotopy K3's with several symplectic structures

arXiv: math.GT/0103158

Abstract

In this note we prove that, for any n , there exist a smooth 4–manifold, homotopic to a K3 surface, defined by applying the link surgery method of Fintushel–Stern to a certain 2–component graph link, which admits n inequivalent symplectic structures.
