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 contact 1‐form. These respective homology/cohomology theories carry additional structure; this sequel proves that the isomorphism that is constructed in the first four papers is compatible with this extra structure. 
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

Let Y be a closed connected contact 3-manifold. In the series of papers "Embedded contact homology and Seiberg-Witten Floer cohomology I-V", Taubes defines an isomorphism between the embedded contact
Embedded contact homology and its applications
Embedded contact homology (ECH) is a kind of Floer homology for contact three-manifolds. Taubes has shown that ECH is isomorphic to a version of Seiberg-Witten Floer homology (and both are
