Grafting Seiberg–Witten monopoles

Abstract

We demonstrate that the operation of taking disjoint unions of J–holomorphic curves (and thus obtaining new J–holomorphic curves) has a Seiberg–Witten counterpart. The main theorem asserts that, given two solutions (Ai,ψi), i = 0,1 of the Seiberg–Witten equations for the Spinc–structures WEi+ = Ei (Ei K1) (with certain restrictions), there is a solution (A,ψ) of the Seiberg–Witten equations for the Spinc–structure WE with E = E0 E1, obtained by “grafting” the two solutions (Ai,ψi).
