I will describe work in progress, joint with Dmitri Panov. A definite connection is an SO(3) connection over a 4-manifold, whose curvature is non-zero on every tangent 2-plane. Given such a connection, the associated 2-sphere bundle is naturally a symplectic manifold. In this talk I will be interested in definite connections invariant under a circle action, in which case the corresponding symplectic six-manifold is “Fano”. I will explain how we hope to classify them, the only possibilities should be connections over S4 or CP2 giving Fanos CP3 and the complete flag on C3 respectively.
