Abstract

In this article, we construct smooth 4–manifolds homeomorphic but not diffeomorphic to 2#k¯2, for k {6,7,8,9}, using the technique of rational blow-down along Wahl type plumbing trees of spheres (see J Wahl, Smoothings of normal surface singularities, Topology 20 (1981) 219–246).

Keywords
