Singular maps on exotic $4$–manifold pairs

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 13 (2013) 1709–1731
##### Abstract

We show examples of pairs of smooth, compact, homeomorphic $4$–manifolds, whose diffeomorphism types are distinguished by the topology of the singular sets of smooth stable maps defined on them. In this distinction we rely on results from Seiberg–Witten theory.

##### Keywords
$4$–manifold, smooth structure, stable map, genus function, Seiberg–Witten invariant
