Methods of abstract algebraic geometry are used to study rank 2 stable vector bundles on ℙ3. These bundles are then used to give self-dual solutions, called instantons, of the Yang-Mills equation onS4.

Uniform vector bundles on Fano manifolds and applications
Abstract In this paper we give a splitting criterion for uniform vector bundles on Fano manifolds covered by lines. As a consequence, we classify low rank uniform vector bundles on HermitianExpand

On graded bundles and their moduli spaces
Abstract Graded bundles are defined and analysed. It is proved that each smooth graded bundle is trivial, i.e. it can be split into W ⊗ ΛE , but there exist non-trivial analytic graded bundles.Expand
Topological aspects of Yang-Mills theory
The space of mapsS3 →G has components which give the topological quantum number of Yang-Mills theory for the groupG. Each component of the space has further topological invariants. WhenG=SU(2) weExpand
Self-dual gauge fields
Abstract The technique for characterising and solving the self-dual Yang-Mills equations by twistor methods is reviewed.
The Homotopy Type of Gauge Theoretic Moduli Spaces
In recent years Gauge theory has been perhaps the most important technique in the study of differentiable structures on four dimensional manifolds. In particular the study of the moduli spaces ofExpand
On graded bundles and their geometry
The notion of a graded bundle is introduced. Although every smooth graded bundle is trivial nevertheless holomorphic graded bundles may not be trivial, i.e. graded elements in their transitionExpand
Group Action on Instanton Bundles over ℙ3
Denote by MI (k) the moduli space of k-instanton bundles E of rank 2 on P 3 = P(V ) and by Zk(E) the scheme of k-jumping lines. We prove that (E) ∈ MI (k) is non-stable for the action of SL(V )iExpand


Instantons and algebraic geometry
Minimum action solutions for SU(2) Yang-Mills fields in Euclidean 4-space correspond, via the Penrose twistor transform, to algebraic bundles on the complex projective 3-space. These bundles in turnExpand
Deformations of instantons.
It is rigorously shown that the solutions of SU(2) gauge theory depend on 8k - 3 parameters, where k is the Pontrijagin index. Expand

In this paper we construct holomorphic vector-bundles of rank 2 on complex-projective spaces to canonical data. More detailed results for the projective plane are given.
Conformal Properties of Pseudoparticle Configurations
The known Euclidean Yang-Mills pseudoparticle solutions with Pontryagin index $n$ are parametrized by $5n$ constants describing the size and location of each pseudoparticle. By insisting on conformalExpand
