Branched Covering Constructions and the Symplectic Geography Problem
(University of Waterloo, 2008-08-15)
We apply branched covering techniques to construct minimal simply-connected symplectic 4-manifolds with small χ_h values. We also use these constructions to provide an alternate proof that for each s ≥ 0, there exists a ...
