$\mathrm{Pin}(2)$–equivariant KO–theory and intersection forms of spin $4$–manifolds

Abstract

Using the Seiberg–Witten Floer spectrum and Pin(2)–equivariant KO–theory, we prove new Furuta-type inequalities on the intersection forms of spin cobordisms between homology 3–spheres. We then give explicit constrains on the intersection forms of spin 4–manifolds bounded by Brieskorn spheres ± Σ(2,3,6k ± 1). Along the way, we also give an alternative proof of Furuta’s improvement of 10 8 –theorem for closed spin 4–manifolds.
