Simple examples of symplectic four-manifolds with exotic properties

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Examples of simply connected nonalgebraic symplectic four-manifolds with a prescribed number of nonintersecting sympletic curves were discussed. The monodromy along every loop in the base was represented by an orientable automorphism and that X → C admitted a smooth section. It was well understood that symbolic geometry was in a sense, more flexible or closer to differential geometry and topology than to algebraic geometry if large fundamental groups was allowed.
