ABSTRACT | We discuss the formal properties and the construction of the invariants of three-manifolds introduced by Kronheimer and Mrowka using Seiberg-Witten theory. After discussing the relevant geometric and topological background, we will focus on applications, in particular the disproof of the Triangulation conjecture.
