This is the webpage of the student learning seminar on Seiberg-Witten theory. The current version of the website design is stolen from the 2016 Remynar.
For the first 5-6 lectures, we will set up the basics of the Seiberg-Witten theory following Morgan's book [M]. After that we will move on to applications, such as those in [KM_Thom], [KM_P], [GS], and possibly discuss the Floerified 3-manifold theory (with the help of some friendly postdocs).
Please e-mail the organizers if you'd like to receive notifications.
Organizers: Semon Rezchikov, Tim Large.
Time and location: Wed 5-7 Math 622. We will announce modifications on colloquium days.
