We prove the existence of singular harmonic ${\bf Z}_2$ spinors on $3$-manifolds with $b_1 > 1$. The proof relies on a wall-crossing formula for solutions to the Seiberg-Witten equation with two spinors. The existence of singular harmonic ${\bf Z}_2$ spinors and the shape of our wall-crossing formula shed new light on recent observations made by Joyce regarding Donaldson and Segal's proposal for counting $G_2$-instantons.

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 from

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 can

Let $M$ be a compact oriented 3-dimensional smooth manifold. In this paper, we will construct a moduli space consisting of the following date $\{(\Sigma, \psi)\}$ where $\Sigma$ is a $C^1$-embedding

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.

Generic Metrics and Connections on Spin- and Spinc-Manifolds

Abstract:We study the dependence of the dimension h0(g,A) of the kernel of the Atyiah-Singer Dirac operator ${\cal D}_{g,A}$ on a spinc-manifold M on the metric g and the connection A. The main

There is a strong analogy between compact, torsion-free $G_2$-manifolds $(X,\varphi,*\varphi)$ and Calabi-Yau 3-folds $(Y,J,g,\omega)$. We can also generalize $(X,\varphi,*\varphi)$ to 'tamed almost

The behavior of sequences of solutions to the Vafa-Witten equations

The Vafa-Witten equations on an oriented Riemannian 4- manifold are first order, non-linear equations for a pair of connection on a principle SO(3) bundle over the 4-manifold and a self-dual 2-form

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 is
