Einstein Metrics and Mostow Rigidity
Abstract: Using the new diffeomorphism invariants of Seiberg and Witten, a uniqueness theorem is proved for Einstein metrics on compact
quotients of irreducible 4-dimensional symmetric spaces of
non-compact type. The proof also yields a Riemannian version of
the Miyaoka-Yau inequality.
