A bound for rational Thurston–Bennequin invariants
In this paper, we introduce a rational $$\tau $$τ invariant for rationally null-homologous knots in contact 3-manifolds with nontrivial Ozsváth–Szabó contact invariants. Such an invariant is an upper
Heegaard Floer homology and knots determined by their complements
In this paper we investigate the question of when different surgeries on a knot can produce identical manifolds. We show that given a knot in a homology sphere, unless the knot is quite special,
Non-simple genus minimizers in lens spaces
Given a one-dimensional homology class in a lens space, a question related to the Berge conjecture on lens space surgeries is to determine all knots realizing the minimal rational genus of all
Correction terms, Z2-Thurston norm, and triangulations
Dehn surgery and Heegaard Floer homology
This thesis presents some new results on Dehn surgery. The overarching theme of the thesis is to find restrictions on obtaining a 3-manifold by a Dehn surgery on a knot in another 3-manifold
Nonorientable surfaces in homology cobordisms
We investigate constraints on embeddings of a nonorientable surface in a 4–manifold with the homology of M I , where M is a rational homology 3–sphere. The constraints take the form of inequalities
τ–invariants for knots in rational homology spheres
Ozsv\'ath and Szab\'o used the knot filtration on $\widehat{CF}(S^3)$ to define the $\tau$-invariant for knots in the 3-sphere. In this article, we generalize their construction and define a
Correction terms, $\mathbb Z_2$--Thurston norm, and triangulations
We show that the correction terms in Heegaard Floer homology give a lower bound to the the genus of one-sided Heegaard splittings and the $\mathbb Z_2$--Thurston norm. Using a result of
Fibered simple knots
We prove that a simple knot in the lens space $L(p,q)$ fibers if and only if its order in homology does not divide any remainder occurring in the Euclidean algorithm applied to the pair $(p,q)$. One


Knot Floer homology and rational surgeries
Let K be a rationally null-homologous knot in a three-manifold Y . We construct a version of knot Floer homology in this context, including a description of the Floer homology of a three-manifold
Link Floer homology detects the Thurston norm
We prove that, for a link L in a rational homology 3–sphere, the link Floer homology detects the Thurston norm of its complement. This result has been proved by Ozsvath and Szabo for links in S^3. As
Holomorphic disks and genus bounds
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 the
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. It
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 concordance
Knots with small rational genus
If K is a rationally null-homologous knot in a 3-manifold M, the rational genus of K is the infimum of -\chi(S)/2p over all embedded orientable surfaces S in the complement of K whose boundary wraps
On Floer homology and the Berge conjecture on knots admitting lens space surgeries
We complete the first step in a two-part program proposed by Baker, Grigsby, and the author to prove that Berge’s construction of knots in the three-sphere which admit lens space surgeries is
Covering spaces and Q-gradings on Heegaard Floer homology
Heegaard Floer homology, first introduced by P. Ozsvath and Z. Szabo in [OS04b], associates to a 3-manifold Y a family of relatively graded abelian groups HF (Y, t), indexed by Spin structures t on Y
Grid Diagrams for Lens Spaces and Combinatorial Knot Floer Homology
Similar to knots in S 3 , any knot in a lens space has a grid diagram from which one can combinatorially compute all of its knot Floer homology invariants. We give an explicit description of the
