|Title:||Higher order Seiberg–Witten functionals and their associated gradient flows|
|Citation:||Manuscripta Mathematica, 2019; 160(3-4):411-481|
|Abstract:||We define functionals generalising the Seiberg–Witten functional on closed spin(c) manifolds, involving higher order derivatives of the curvature form and spinor field. We then consider their associated gradient flows and, using a gauge fixing technique, are able to prove short time existence for the flows. We then prove energy estimates along the flow, and establish local L²-derivative estimates. These are then used to show long time existence of the flow in sub-critical dimensions. In the critical dimension, we are able to show that long time existence is obstructed by an L(k+2) curvature concentration phenomenon.|
