Abstract

Constructing a partition function for Euclidean quantum gravity by using asymptotically locally flat instantons will result in an imaginary contribution to the partition function. A negative eigenmode for the differential operator giving a one-loop contribution to the partition function has been found for the Taub-bolt instanton. Zero modes for the Taub-bolt and Taub-NUT instantons are discussed.
