Unlike for the classical Seiberg-Witten equation, compactness fails for the Seiberg-Witten equation with multiple spinors. This non-compactness is caused by Fueter sections with values in the moduli space of charge 1 SU(n) ASD instantons. In the simplest case, n = 2, those are Z/2 harmonic spinors. In this talk I will explain in more detail what the preceding sentences mean and then discuss the wall-crossing caused by the appearance of (non-singular) Z/2 harmonic spinors. This is joint work with Aleksander Doan.
