Simon Donaldson needs to be in the article; see this, for example. Orthografer 05:14, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
I did more investigation, and as far as I understand it, Andrew Casson first had the construction (the Casson handle, which when attached to a standard 0-handle was the first exotic R4), but didn't know whether it was homeomorphic to R4, or whether it was exotic. Then Freedman's and Donaldson's work answered both questions with a "yes." I'm not sure what Taubes had to do with this. Orthografer 19:19, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
I've never seen the use of continuum as short for the cardinality. If that isn't standard language in the field, that's quite the misleading abbreviation, since no continuity is implied by having size א1. ᛭ LokiClock (talk) 16:22, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Continuum is standard terminogy. Rybu (talk) 08:11, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
And it only refers to the size, without further axioms or structure? ᛭ LokiClock (talk) 07:31, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
