Milnor conjecture (topology)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is in a similar vein to the Thom conjecture.
It was first proved by gauge theoretic methods by Peter Kronheimer and Tomasz Mrowka. Jacob Rasmussen later gave a purely combinatorial proof using Khovanov homology, by means of the s-invariant.
