We compute the Donaldson SU(2)-invariants of the double cover of CP2 branched over a smooth algebraic curve of degree eight. From this we deduce a formula for the relative invariants of the blow-up of the Gompf nucleus N2, and we show how this gives a blow-up formula for a class of 4-manifolds which includes essentially all the simply connected 4-manifolds known to have big diffeomorphism group. We apply the result on the nucleus also to prove a formula for the invariants of minimal simply connected elliptic surfaces which reduces the computation to the case of geometric genus one. In particular, we compute all the Donaldson invariants of minimal simply connected elliptic surfaces without multiple fibers. Our main tool is Donaldson-Floer theory.
