In this paper, we consider solutions of the following (open) Toda system (Toda lattice) for SU(N + 1) \Gamma 1 2 \Deltau i = N X j=1 a ij e u j in R 2 ; for i = 1; 2; \Delta \Delta \Delta ; N , where K = (a ij ) N \ThetaN is the Cartan matrix for SU(N + 1). We show that any solution u = (u 1 ; u 2 ; \Delta \Delta \Delta ; uN ) with Z R 2 e u i ! 1; i = 1; 2; \Delta \Delta \Delta ; N; can be obtained from a rational curve in C P N .

This work concerns the study of certain finiteenergy solutions of the antiselfdual YangMills equations on Euclidean 4dimensional space which are periodic in two directions, socalled doublyperiodic instantons. We establish a circle of ideas involving equivalent analytical and algebraicgeometric descriptions of these objects. In the first introductory chapter we provide an overview of the problem and state the main results to be proven in the thesis. In chapter 2, we study the asymptotic behaviour of the connections we are concerned with, and show that the coupled Dirac operator is Fredholm. After laying these foundations, we are ready to address the main topic of the thesis, the construction of a Nahm transform of doublyperiodic instantons. By combining differentialgeometric and holomorphic methods, we show in chapters 3 through 5 that doublyperiodic instantons correspond bijectively to certain singular Higgs pairs, i.e. meromorphic solutions of
Antiselfdual instantons with Lagrangian boundary conditions I: Elliptic theory
 Bubbling, Comm. Math. Phys
"... Abstract: We study nonlocal Lagrangian boundary conditions for antiselfdual instantons on 4manifolds with a spacetime splitting of the boundary. We establish the basic regularity and compactness properties (assuming L pbounds on the curvature for p> 2) as well as the Fredholm theory in a com ..."

Abstract: We study nonlocal Lagrangian boundary conditions for antiselfdual instantons on 4manifolds with a spacetime splitting of the boundary. We establish the basic regularity and compactness properties (assuming L pbounds on the curvature for p> 2) as well as the Fredholm theory in a compact model case. The motivation for studying this boundary value problem lies in the construction of an instanton Floer homology for 3manifolds with boundary. The present paper is part of a program proposed by Salamon for the proof of the AtiyahFloer conjecture for homology3spheres. 1.

The concept of generalised (in the sense of Colombeau) connection on a principal fibre bundle is introduced. This definition is then used to extend results concerning the geometry of principal fibre bundles to those that only have a generalised connection. Some applications to singular solutions of YangMills theory are given. 1

We prove that the space of SU(2) hyperbolic monopoles based at the centre of hyperbolic space is homeomorphic to the space of (unbased) rational maps of the twosphere. The homeomorphism extends to a map of the natural compactifications of the two spaces. We also show that the scattering methods used in the study of monopoles apply to the configuration space for hyperbolic monopoles giving a homotopy equivalence of this space with the space of continuous selfmaps of the twosphere. AMS classification: 81T13, 53C07, 55P10 1 Introduction. It has long been known that moduli spaces of monopoles and holomorphic maps of the twosphere are intimately related. In [1, 2] Atiyah introduced the space of hyperbolic monopoles showing that for integral mass the space of charge k SU(2) monopoles based at infinity is isomorphic to the space of degree k based holomorphic selfmaps of the twosphere. His approach was to identify hyperbolic monopoles as instantons over the foursphere invariant under ...
