A Bauer–Furuta-type refinement of Kronheimer and Mrowka's invariant for $4$–manifolds with contact boundary

Abstract

Kronheimer and Mrowka (Invent. Math. 130 (1997) 209–255) constructed a variant of Seiberg–Witten invariants for a 4–manifold X with contact boundary. Using Furuta’s finite-dimensional approximation, we refine this invariant in the case H1(X,X; ) = 0.
