Abstract: In the 1980's Simon Donaldson revolutionized our understanding of 4-dimensional manifolds by using solitons of Yang-Mills theory. A decade later Seiberg and Witten introduced their equations which turn out to produce a theory essentially equivalent (or dual) to Donaldson theory. These provide additional insight and I will review this material.
