The Seiberg-Witten equations are intimately related to various recent developments in low dimensional topology. I will talk about properties and applications of the Seiberg-Witten equations to geometry and topology primarily in dimension three. If time permits, I will also touch a (conjectural) relation of these equations to geometry of G2-manifolds.

NOTE: This talk is aimed at a general audience of mathematicians.
