Topologically slice knots that are not smoothly slice in any definite $4$–manifold

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 18 (2018) 827–837
Abstract

We prove that there exist infinitely many topologically slice knots which cannot bound a smooth null-homologous disk in any definite 4–manifold. Furthermore, we show that we can take such knots so that they are linearly independent in the knot concordance group.
