The 4-manifold S1 x S3, when endowed with the structure of a certain complex Hopf surface, is an example of a principal elliptic fibration. We use this structure to study the moduli spaces of anti-self-dual connections (instantons) on SU(2) bundles over S1 x S3. Chapter 1 is introductory.

We define Buchdahl's notion of stability and outline the correspondence between instantons and Author: David Stevenson. Yang-Mills instantons over Hopf surfaces Author: Stevenson, David ISNI: construction of Friedman to describe a method of construction for elements of the remaining strata of the moduli spaces over the Hopf surface.

In the charge 1 case we again determine the diffeomorphism type of the stratum : David Stevenson. Mathematically, a Yang–Mills instanton is a self-dual or anti-self-dual connection in a principal bundle over a four-dimensional Riemannian manifold that plays the role of physical space-time in non-abelian gauge tons are topologically nontrivial solutions of Yang–Mills equations that absolutely minimize the energy functional within their topological type.

Description Yang-Mills instantons over Hopf surfaces EPUB

there is a detailed analogy between Yang-Mills theory over 4-manifolds and the geometry of maps from a Riemann surface to a symplectic manifold. The Yang-Mills functional is analogous to the harmonic maps “energy functional” and the Yang-Mills instantons to the pesudo-holomorphic maps (defined after a choice.

A great short introduction can be found in section "Yang-Mills Instantons" in the book Gauge Field Theories by Guidry The best book in the topic is Solitons and Instantons by R.

The rst subject concerns instantons in Yang{Mills theory and it has proved to be a powerful tool in the study of smooth four-manifolds. Electric-magnetic duality is present in Abelian gauge theories, where identities related to four-manifolds induce useful symmetries.

More generally, Yang-Mills theories contain gauge elds and matter elds like ˚ and elds with both group and Lorentz or spinor indices. Also. The existence of instantons, like the existence of monopoles, can be traced down to the property of vacuum degeneracy.

Instantons are static solutions of the classical equations of motion of Yang–Mills gauge theory which are also configurations of finite energy [9, 27, 28]. We will employ again the Weyl or temporal gauge. The book provides a self-contained and accessible introduction to the subject.

It starts with an introduction to integrability of ordinary and partial differential equations. Subsequent chapters explore symmetry analysis, gauge theory, gravitational instantons, twistor transforms, and anti-self-duality equations.

The moduli space of Yang–Mills equations was used by Donaldson to prove Donaldson's theorem about the intersection form of simply-connected analytical results of Clifford Taubes and Karen Uhlenbeck, Donaldson was able to show that in specific circumstances (when the intersection form is definite) the moduli space of ASD instantons on a smooth.

determining Yang-Mills instantons on a multi Taub-NUT space. Under the electric-magnetic duality, the fundamental- and bifundamental-carrying impurity walls are interchanged, while the super Yang-Mills theory describing the bulk is mapped to itself.

We perform a. For a closed 4-manifold X the Yang–Mills instantons define a nu-merical invariant Z(X), and for a 4-manifold with boundary we obtain invariants with values in the Floer homology of the boundary.

Actually, as we shall see, the simple axioms above need to be modified slightly to apply to the Yang–Mills set-up and the theory has a number of.Abstract. A hypercomplex manifold is a manifold equipped with three complex structures I, J, K satisfying the quaternionic relations.
