Seiberg-Witten monopoles and Thom’s conjecture (after Kronheimer, Mrowka and Witten). (Monopôles de Seiberg-Witten et conjecture de Thom (d’après Kronheimer, Mrowka et Witten).) (French) Zbl 0881.57035
Séminaire Bourbaki. Volume 1995/96. Exposés 805–819. Paris: Société Mathématique de France, Astérisque. 241, 59-96, Exp. No. 807 (1997).
In this large survey the following subjects are treated : the structure \(Spin^c\), the Clifford algebra, the Dirac equations, the Seiberg-Witten equations, the Thom conjecture. The last section contains a discussion of the implications to modern physics of the presented results.
