In this paper, we give an algorithm to compute the hat version of Heegaard Floer homology of a closed oriented three-manifold. This method also allows us to compute the filtration coming from a null-homologous link in a three-manifold. 
A Combinatorial Description of the U2=0 Version of Heegaard Floer Homology
We show that every 3–manifold admits a Heegaard diagram in which a truncated version of Heegaard Floer homology (when the holomorpic disks pass through the basepoints at most once) can be computedExpand
Combinatorial Heegaard Floer homology and nice Heegaard diagrams
Abstract We consider a stabilized version of HF of a 3-manifold Y (i.e. the U = 0 variant of Heegaard Floer homology for closed 3-manifolds). We give a combinatorial algorithm for constructing thisExpand
Notes on bordered Floer homology
This is a survey of bordered Heegaard Floer homology, an extension of the Heegaard Floer invariant HF-hat to 3-manifolds with boundary. Emphasis is placed on how bordered Heegaard Floer homology canExpand
Introduction to the basics of Heegaard Floer homology
This paper provides an introduction to the basics of Heegaard Floer homology with some emphasis on the hat theory and to the contact geometric invariants in the theory. The exposition is designed toExpand
Combinatorial Heegaard Floer homology and sign assignments
We provide an intergral lift of the combinatorial definition of Heegaard Floer homology for nice diagrams, and show that the proof of independence using convenient diagrams adapts to this setting.
Dehn Twists in Heegaard Floer Homology
We derive a new exact sequence in the hat-version of Heegaard Floer homology. As a consequence we see a functorial connection between the invariant of Legendrian knots and the contact element. As anExpand
Algebraic torsion via Heegaard Floer homology
We outline Hutchings's prescription that produces an ECH analog of Latschev and Wendl's algebraic $k$-torsion in the context of $ech$, a variant of ECH used in a proof of the isomorphism betweenExpand

Combinatorial proofs in bordered Heegaard Floer homology
Using bordered Floer theory, we give a combinatorial construction and proof of invariance for the hat version of Heegaard Floer homology. As a part of the proof, we also establish combinatorially theExpand

Heegaard Diagrams and Holomorphic Disks
A three-manifold equipped with a Heegaard diagram can be used to set up a Floer homology theory whose differential counts pseudo-holomorphic disks in the $g$-fold symmetric product of the HeegaardExpand
Heegaard diagrams and Floer homology
We review the construction of Heegaard�Floer homology for closed three-manifolds and also for knots and links in the three-sphere. We also discuss three applications of this invariant to knot theory:Expand
A combinatorial description of knot Floer homology
Given a grid presentation of a knot (or link) K in the three-sphere, we describe a Heegaard diagram for the knot complement in which the Heegaard surface is a torus and all elementary domains areExpand
Link Floer homology and the Thurston norm
We show that link Floer homology detects the Thurston norm of a link complement. As an application, we show that the Thurston polytope of an alternating link is dual to the Newton polytope of itsExpand
Holomorphic disks and knot invariants
Abstract We define a Floer-homology invariant for knots in an oriented three-manifold, closely related to the Heegaard Floer homologies for three-manifolds defined in an earlier paper. We set upExpand
Knot Floer homology and the four-ball genus
We use the knot filtration on the Heegaard Floer complex to define an integer invariant tau(K) for knots. Like the classical signature, this invariant gives a homomorphism from the knot concordanceExpand
Holomorphic disks and topological invariants for closed three-manifolds
The aim of this article is to introduce certain topological invariants for closed, oriented three-manifolds Y, equipped with a Spiny structure. Given a Heegaard splitting of Y = U 0o U Σ U 1 , theseExpand

We prove that, like the Seiberg-Witten monopole homology, the Heegaard Floer homology for a three-manifold determines its Thurston norm. As a consequence, we show that knot Floer homology detects theExpand
Floer homology and knot complements
We use the Ozsvath-Szabo theory of Floer homology to define an invariant of knot complements in three-manifolds. This invariant takes the form of a filtered chain complex, which we call CF_r. ItExpand
A cylindrical reformulation of Heegaard Floer homology
We reformulate Heegaard Floer homology in terms of holomorphic curves in the cylindrical manifold U a0;1c R, where U is the Heegaard surface, instead of Sym g .U/. We then show that the entireExpand
