We exhibit an infinite family of knots with isomorphic knot Heegaard Floer homology. Each knot in this infinite family admits a nontrivial genus two mutant which shares the same total dimension in both knot Floer homology and Khovanov homology. Each knot is distinguished from its genus two mutant by both knot Floer homology and Khovanov homology as bigraded groups. Additionally, for both knot Heegaard Floer homology and Khovanov homology, the genus two mutation interchanges the groups in… Expand

This paper explores two questions: (1) Which bigraded groups arise as the knot Floer homology of a knot in the three-sphere? (2) Given a knot, how many distinct knots share its Floer homology?Expand
Twisting, mutation and knot Floer homology
Let $\mathcal{L}$ be a knot with a fixed positive crossing and $\mathcal{L}_n$ the link obtained by replacing this crossing with $n$ positive twists. We prove that the knot Floer homologyExpand
The mapping cone formula in Heegaard Floer homology and Dehn surgery on knots in S3

Knot reversal acts non-trivially on the concordance group of topologically slice knots
We construct an infinite family of topologically slice knots that are not smoothly concordant to their reverses. More precisely, if T denotes the concordance group of topologically slice knots and RExpand
Knot reversal and mutation act non-trivially on the concordance group of topologically slice knots

Three Manifold Mutations Detected by Heegaard Floer Homology
Given a self-diffeomorphism φ of a closed, orientable surface S with genus greater than one and an embedding f of S into a threemanifold M , we construct a mutant manifold by cutting M along f(S) andExpand
Symmetric Unions Without Cosmetic Crossing Changes
A symmetric union of two knots is a classical construction in knot theory which generalizes connected sum, introduced by Kinoshita and Terasaka in the 1950s. We study this construction for theExpand
Dehn surgery and Heegaard Floer homology

Behavior of knot invariants under genus 2 mutation
