We give a brief introduction to Floer homotopy, from the Seiberg-Witten point of view. We will then discuss Manolescu's version of finite-dimensional approximation for rational homology spheres. We prove that a version of finite-dimensional approximation for the Seiberg-Witten equations associates equivariant spectra to a large class of three-manifolds. In the process we will also associate, to a cobordism of three-manifolds, a map between spectra. We give some applications to intersection forms of four-manifolds with boundary. This is joint work with Hirofumi Sasahira.
