On embeddings of 3-manifolds in 6-manifolds
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, we give a simple axiomatic definition of an invariant of
smooth embeddings of 3-manifolds in 6-manifolds.
The axiom is expressed in terms of some cobordisms of pairs of manifolds of
dimensions 6 and 3 (equipped with some cohomology class of the complement) and
the signature of 4-manifolds.
We then show that our invariant gives a unified framework for some classical
invariants in low-dimensions (Haefliger invariant, Milnor's triple
linking number, Rokhlin invariant, Casson invariant,
Takase's invariant, Skopenkov's invariants).
