Abstract : It has long been a question which homology class is represented by an embedded $2$-sphere in a smooth $4$-manifold. In this article we study the adjunction inequality, one of main results of Seiberg-Witten theory in smooth $4$-manifolds, for an embedded $2$-sphere. As a result, we give a criterion which homology class cannot be represented by an embedded $2$-sphere in some cases.
Keywords : adjunction inequality, smooth $4$-manifold, SW-basic class
