1994

Recently, Seiberg and Witten (see [SW1] , [SW2] , [W]) introduced a remarkable new equation which gives differential-topological invariants for a compact, oriented 4-manifold with a distinguished integral cohomology class. A brief mathematical description of these new invariants is given in the recent preprint [KM]. My purpose here is to prove the following theorem: Let ω be a symplectic form on X with ω ∧ ω giving the orientation. Then the first Chern class of the associated almost complex
