## A Remark by Atiyah on Donaldson's Theory, ap Theory and Ads/cft Duality

**Authors:** H.E. Winkelnkemper

Using Artin Presentation Theory, we mathematically augment a
remark of Atiyah on physics and Donaldson's 4D theory which, conversely, explicitly
introduces the theoretical physical relevance of AP Theory into Modern
Physics. AP Theory is a purely discrete group-theoretic, in fact, a framed pure
braid theory, which, in the sharpest possible holographic manner, encodes all
closed, orientable 3-manifolds and their knot and linking theories, and a large
class of compact, connected, simply-connected, smooth 4-manifolds with a connected
boundary, whose physical relevance for Atiyah's remark we explain.
