Edges, orbifolds, and Seiberg–Witten theory
Seiberg–Witten theory is used to obtain new obstructions to the existence of Einstein metrics on 4-manifolds with conical singularities along an embedded surface. In the present article, the cone angle is required to be of the form $2\pi /p$, $p$ a positive integer, but we conjecture that similar results will also hold in greater generality.
