Description: In this talk, we will present a new construction of symplectic 4-manifolds homeomorphic but not diffeomorphic to (2n 2k-3) CP^2#(6n 2k-3)(-CP^2) via Luttinger surgery. If time permits, we will also construct new symplectic 4-manifolds with the free group of finite rank and various other finitely generated groups as the fundamental group. This is a joint work with Anar Akhmedov.
