Characteristic cohomotopy classes for families of 4-manifolds

Markus Szymik
Published Online: 2010-02-08 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/forum.2010.027


Families of smooth closed oriented 4-manifolds with a complex spin structure are studied by means of a family version of the Bauer-Furuta invariants. The definition is given in the context of parametrised stable homotopy theory, but an interpretation in terms of characteristic cohomotopy classes on Thom spectra associated to the classifying spaces of complex spin diffeomorphism groups is given as well. The theory is illustrated with families of K3 surfaces and mapping tori of diffeomorphisms. It is also related to equivariant invariants.
