We compute the Heegaard Floer homology of any rational homology 3‐sphere with an open book decomposition of the form (T, ϕ), where T is a genus one surface with one‐boundary component. In addition, we compute the Heegaard Floer homology of every T2‐bundle over S1 with first Betti number equal to 1, and we compare our results with those of Lebow on the embedded contact homology of such torus bundles. We use these computations to place restrictions on Stein‐fillings of the contact structures… 

A spanning tree model for the Heegaard Floer homology of a branched double‐cover

Given a diagram of a link K in S3, we write down a Heegaard diagram for the branched‐double cover Σ(K). The generators of the associated Heegaard Floer chain complex correspond to Kauffman states of

Dehn surgery, rational open books and knot Floer homology

By recent results of Baker, Etnyre and Van Horn-Morris, a rational open book decomposition defines a compatible contact structure. We show that the Heegaard Floer contact invariant of such a contact

Taut foliations, contact structures and left-orderable groups

We study the left-orderability of the fundamental groups of cyclic branched covers of links which admit co-oriented taut foliations. In particular we do this for cyclic branched covers of fibered

Indefinite Stein fillings and PIN ( 2 ) -monopole Floer homology

We introduce techniques to study the topology of Stein fillings of a given contact three-manifold ( Y , ξ) which are not negative definite. For example, given a spin c rational homology sphere ( Y , s

The Khovanov width of twisted links and closed 3-braids

Khovanov homology is a bigraded Z-module that categorifies the Jones polynomial. The support of Khovanov homology lies on a finite number of slope two lines with respect to the bigrading. The

On the spectral sequence from Khovanov homology to Heegaard Floer homology

Ozsvath and Szabo show that there is a spectral sequence whose E^2 term is the reduced Khovanov homology of L, and which converges to the Heegaard Floer homology of the (orientation reversed)

Khovanov–Seidel quiver algebras and bordered Floer homology

We discuss a relationship between Khovanov- and Heegaard Floer-type homology theories for braids. Explicitly, we define a filtration on the bordered Heegaard–Floer homology bimodule associated to the

Tight contact structures and genus one fibered knots

We study contact structures compatible with genus one open book decompositions with one boundary component. Any monodromy for such an open book can be written as a product of Dehn twists around dual

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 concordance and Heegaard Floer homology invariants in branched covers

By studying the Heegaard Floer homology of the preimage of a knot K in S^3 inside its double branched cover, we develop simple obstructions to K having finite order in the classical smooth

We present an alternate description of the Ozsvath-Szabo contact class in Heegaard Floer homology. Using our contact class, we prove that if a contact structure (M,\xi) has an adapted open book

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

Computations of Heegaard-Floer knot homology

We compute the knot Floer homology of knots with at most 12 crossings, as well as the τ invariant for knots with at most 11 crossings, using the combinatorial approach described by Manolescu, Ozsvath

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
