I describe a relation (mostly conjectural) between the Seiberg-Witten monopoles, Fueter sections, and G2 instantons. In the last part of this article I gathered some open questions connected with this relation.

On counting associative submanifolds and Seiberg-Witten monopoles.
Building on ideas from [DT98; DS11; Wal17; Hay17], we outline a proposal for constructing Floer homology groups associated with a G2-manifold generated by associative submanifolds and solutions ofExpand
New G2-conifolds in M-theory and their field theory interpretation
A recent theorem of Foscolo-Haskins-Nordstrom which constructs complete $G_2$-holonomy orbifolds from circle bundles over Calabi-Yau cones can be utilised to construct and investigate a large classExpand
Deformation theory of the blown-up Seiberg–Witten equation in dimension three
Associated with every quaternionic representation of a compact, connected Lie group there is a Seiberg–Witten equation in dimension three. The moduli spaces of solutions to these equations areExpand
Adiabatic limits and Kazdan–Warner equations
We study the limiting behaviour of solutions to abelian vortex equations when the volume of the underlying Riemann surface grows to infinity. We prove that the solutions converge smoothly away fromExpand
Seiberg-Witten monopoles with multiple spinors on a surface times a circle
The Seiberg-Witten equation with multiple spinors generalises the classical Seiberg-Witten equation in dimension three. In contrast to the classical case, the moduli space of solutions $\mathcal{M}$Expand
On the compactness problem for a family of generalized Seiberg-Witten equations in dimension three
We prove an abstract compactness theorem for a family of generalized Seiberg-Witten equations in dimension three. This result recovers Taubes' compactness theorem for stable flatExpand

Several Compactness Results in Gauge Theory and Low Dimensional Topology
This thesis studies several compactness problems in gauge theory and explores their applications is low dimensional topology. The first chapter studies a connection between taut foliations andExpand
Rectifiability and Minkowski bounds for the zero loci of $\mathbb{Z}/2$ harmonic spinors in dimension 4
This article proves that the zero locus of a $\mathbb{Z}/2$ harmonic spinor on a 4 dimensional manifold is 2-rectifiable and has locally finite Minkowski content.
Index theorem for Z/2-harmonic spinors.
In my previous paper, I prove the existence of the Kuranishi structure for the moduli space $\mathfrak{M}$ of zero loci of $\mathbb{Z}/2$-harmonic spinors on a 3-manifold. So a nature question we canExpand


A compactness theorem for the Seiberg–Witten equation with multiple spinors in dimension three
We prove that a sequence of solutions of the Seiberg–Witten equation with multiple spinors in dimension three can degenerate only by converging (after rescaling) to a Fueter section of a bundle ofExpand
$G_2$-instantons, associative submanifolds, and Fueter sections
We give a sufficient condition for an associative submanifold in a G2-manifold to appear as the bubbling locus of a sequence of G2-instantons, related to the existence of a Fueter section of a bundleExpand

Gauge Theory in higher dimensions, II
The main aim of the paper is to develop the "Floer theory" associated to Calabi-Yau 3-folds, exending the analogy of Thomas' "holomorphic Casson invariant". The treatment in the body of the paper isExpand

It is shown that higher dimensional anti-self-duality equations on the total spaces of spinor bundles over low-dimensional manifolds can be interpreted as the Taubes–Pidstrygach generalization of the Seiberg–Witten equations. Expand
Metrics with exceptional holonomy
It is proved that there exist metrics with holonomy G2 and Spin(7), thus settling the remaining cases in Berger's list of possible holonomy groups. We first reformulate the "holonomy H" condition asExpand
A Tour of Exceptional Geometry
A discussion of G 2 and its manifestations is followed by the definition of various groups acting on R 8 . Calculation of exterior and covariant derivatives is carried out for a specific metric on aExpand
Compactness theorems for SL(2;C) generalizations of the 4-dimensional anti-self dual equations, Part I
Uhlenbeck's compactness theorem can be used to analyze sequences of connections with anti-self dual curvature on principal SU(2) bundles over oriented 4-dimensional manifolds. The theorems in thisExpand
Twisted connected sums and special Riemannian holonomy
We give a new, connected-sum-like construction of Riemannian metrics with special holonomy G_2 on compact 7-manifolds. The construction is based on a gluing theorem for appropriate elliptic partialExpand
Connections withLP bounds on curvature
We show by means of the implicit function theorem that Coulomb gauges exist for fields over a ball inRn when the integralLn/2 field norm is sufficiently small. We then are able to prove a weakExpand
