Title: Physics in Families and analysis to compute invariants of exotic structures in 4D
Abstract: Partial differential equations that were first introduced as a model for particle interactions may be used to define topological invariants. We will review a small bit of the history of these equations. The next question that arises is how to compute such invariants. We will define a new invariant via gauge-theoretic equations and describe how it may be computed in some cases.
