Poincaré invariants are Seiberg–Witten invariants

Huai-liang Chang and Young-Hoon Kiem

Geometry & Topology 17 (2013) 1149–1163
Abstract

We prove a conjecture of Dürr, Kabanov and Okonek that provides an algebro-geometric theory of Seiberg–Witten invariants for all smooth projective surfaces. Our main technique is the cosection localization principle (Kiem and Li [arXiv:1007.3085]) of virtual cycles.

Keywords
