In science:

A more concrete approach to the construction of K-homology, close in spirit to that in the algebraic category, is to define the K-homology of M as K (Rn , Rn− M ), the Grothendieck group of complexes of vector bundles on Rn , exact off M for some closed embedding of M in Rn .

For our enumerative purposes, this locus must therefore be subtracted off, with the correct multiplicity, to get the correct count of smooth curves with unbalanced normal bundle.
Normal bundles of rational curves in projective spaces
It is easy to see that ZS0 is the trivial disk bundle S 2 × D2 . (Either by drawing a Kirby diagram or by observing that any simple wrinkled fibration with two cusps is homotopic to a bundle pro jection.) Thus there are exactly two ways to close off the fibration, producing a summand ∼= S 2 × S 2 or S1 ∼= CP 2#CP 2 .

To start off, let us consider the case where the base manifold is a compact Riemann surface Σ equipped with a conformal metric and the vector bundle is a Hermitian line bundle L (i.e., with fiber C and a Hermitian metric h·, ·i on the fibers).
