Instanton counting and Donaldson invariants |
Abstract: (based on joint work with L.Goettsche and K.Yoshioka) Nekrasov introduced a certain partition function, which can be regarded as the generating function of Donaldson invariants of R^{4 } with the torus action. He conjectured that its leading coefficient is equal to the so-called Seiberg-Witten prepotential, which is defined via periods of elliptic curves. I will explain its solution and the relation to ordinary Donaldson invariants of 4-manifolds, especially to the wall-crossing formula. |
