(Note: There are no symplectic forms on X unless b and the first Betti number of X have opposite parity.) In a subsequent article with joint authors, a vanishing theorem will be proved for the
On the self‐linking of knots
This note describes a subcomplex F of the de Rham complex of parametrized knot space, which is combinatorial over a number of universal ‘‘Anomaly Integrals.’’ The self‐linking integrals of
SW ⇒ Gr: From the Seiberg-Witten equations to pseudo-holomorphic curves
The purpose of this article is to explain how pseudo-holomorphic curves in a symplectic 4-manifold can be constructed from solutions to the Seiberg-Witten equations. As such, the main theorem proved
Gauge theory on asymptotically periodic {4}-manifolds
Il existe une famille non denombrable de classes de diffeomorphismes des 4-varietes orientees homeomorphes a R 4
On Witten's proof of the positive energy theorem
This paper gives a mathematically rigorous proof of the positive energy theorem using spinors. This completes and simplifies the original argument presented by Edward Witten. We clarify the geometric
Compensatory cis-trans Evolution and the Dysregulation of Gene Expression in Interspecific Hybrids of Drosophila
Using a mathematical model for the regulation of gene expression, the conditions under which cis-trans compensatory evolution can lead to misexpression in interspecific hybrids are explored and 13 candidate genes whose dysregulation might be the consequence of coevolution of cis- and trans-regulatory elements within species are found.
