On PFH and HF spectral invariants

In this note, we define the link spectral invariants by using the cylindrical formulation of the quantitative Heegaard Floer homology. We call them HF spectral invariants. We deduce a relation between



On cobordism maps on periodic Floer homology

In this article, we investigate the cobordism maps on periodic Floer homology (PFH). In the first part of the paper, we define the cobordism maps on PFH via Seiberg Witten theory as well as the

Periodic Floer homology and Seiberg-Witten Floer cohomology

Various Seiberg-Witten Floer cohomologies are defined for a closed, oriented 3-manifold; and if it is the mapping torus of an area-preserving surface automorphism, it has an associated periodic Floer

A long exact sequence for symplectic Floer cohomology

Automatic transversality and orbifolds of punctured holomorphic curves in dimension four

We derive a numerical criterion for J-holomorphic curves in 4-dimensional symplectic cobordisms to achieve transversality without any genericity assumption. This generalizes results of

An index inequality for embedded pseudoholomorphic curves in symplectizations

Abstract.Let Σ be a surface with a symplectic form, let φ be a symplectomorphism of Σ, and let Y be the mapping torus of φ. We show that the dimensions of moduli spaces of embedded pseudoholomorphic

A Morse-Bott approach to contact homology

Contact homology was introduced by Eliashberg, Givental and Hofer; this contact invariant is based on J-holomorphic curves in the symplectization of a contact manifold. We expose an extension of

Embedded contact homology and Seiberg–Witten Floer cohomology II

This is a sequel to four earlier papers by the author that construct an isomorphism between the embedded contact homology and Seiberg‐Witten Floer cohomology of a compact 3‐manifold with a given

The embedded contact homology index revisited

Let Y be a closed oriented 3-manifold with a contact form such that all Reeb orbits are nondegenerate. The embedded contact homology (ECH) index associates an integer to each relative 2-dimensional

Seiberg-Witten and Gromov invariants for self-dual harmonic 2-forms

Author(s): Gerig, Chris | Advisor(s): Hutchings, Michael | Abstract: For a closed oriented smooth 4-manifold X with $b^2_+(X)g0$, the Seiberg-Witten invariants are well-defined. Taubes' "SW=Gr"
