# Absolute gradings on ECH and Heegaard Floer homology

@article{Ramos2014AbsoluteGO, title={Absolute gradings on ECH and Heegaard Floer homology}, author={Vinicius G. B. Ramos}, journal={arXiv: Symplectic Geometry}, year={2014} }

In joint work with Yang Huang, we defined a canonical absolute grading on Heegaard Floer homology by homotopy classes of oriented 2-plane fields. A similar grading was defined on embedded contact homology by Michael Hutchings. In this paper we show that the isomorphism between these homology theories defined by Colin-Ghiggini-Honda preserves this grading.
