The relatively new gauge-theoretic Kapustin-Witten equations on four- and five-manifolds have been proposed by Witten as a means to obtain knot invariants of three-manifolds. The analytic underpinnings of this theory are still in their beginning stages. I will describe the overall scheme and explain the analytic issues which are in the process of being resolved.
