1 The main purpose of the present research is to develope K-theoretical aspect of Seiberg-Witten theory.
(1) Kametani and Furuta extended the notions of Pin structures and e-invariants to obtain an application to the stable-homotopy Seiberg-Witten invariants. They actually showed an inequality stronger than the 11/8-inequality under some condition on the cup product on H^1.
(2) Minami showed "G-join theorem" and apply it to the stable-homotopy Seiberg-Witten invariants and improved the 10/8-theorem for spin 4-manifolds.
(3) Ue, Furuta and Y.Fukumoto investigated properties of of the w-invariant, which they defined, and obtained some applications to Seiberg-fibered homology 3-spheres.
(4) Konnno calculated the cohomology ring of the moduli spaces of polygons as examples of hyper-kahler quotients.
(5) Kotani obtained a central limit theorem for magnetic transition operators on a crystal lattice.
2 The main members of the present research regularly attended a series of conferences to discuss the following topics.
(1) Mochizuki explained his work on r-spin structure. Furuta pointed out a possibility of a construction in 2-dimensional topology which is parallel to the stable homotopy version of the Seiberg-Witten invariants.
(2) M.Morishita (Univ. Kanazawa) was invited to explain his idea about a similarity between number theory and 3-dimensional topology. We discussed Mazur's unpublished work on a similarity between general knots and fibered knots when the fundamental groups of the knot complements are completed in some way.
