Rational surfaces and symplectic 4-manifolds with one basic class

Ronald Fintushel, Jongil Park, Ronald J. Stern

Abstract. We present constructions of simply connected symplectic 4-manifolds which have (up to sign) one basic class and which fill up the geographical region between the half-Noether and Noether lines.

Keywords. $4$-manifold, Seiberg-Witten invariant
