Recently there has been a surge of interest in the Seiberg-Witten invariants of 3-manifolds, see [3], [4], [7]. The Seiberg-Witten invariant of a closed oriented 3-manifold M is a function SW from the set of Spin-structures on M to Z. This function is defined under the assumption b1(M) ≥ 1 where b1(M) is the first Betti number of M ; in the case b1(M) = 1 the function SW depends on the choice of a generator of H(M ; Z) = Z. The definition of SW runs parallel to the definition of the SW… CONTINUE READING
