We construct infinite families of topologically isotopic, but smoothly distinct knotted spheres, in many simply connected 4-manifolds that become smoothly isotopic after stabilizing by connected summing with S 2 ×S 2 , and as a consequence, analogous families of diffeomorphisms and metrics of positive scalar curvature for such 4-manifolds. We also construct(More)
There is great value in employing the collective problem-solving power of large groups of people. Technological advances have allowed computer games to be utilized by a diverse population to solve problems. Science games are becoming more popular and cover various areas such as sequence alignments, DNA base-pairing, and protein and RNA folding. While these(More)
