This is a companion paper to an earlier work of the authors. In this paper, we provide an axiomatic definition of Floer homology for balanced sutured manifolds and prove that the graded Euler characteristic χgr of this homology is fully determined by the axioms we proposed. As a result, we conclude that χgrpSHIpM,γqq “ χgrpSFHpM,γqq for any balanced sutured manifold pM,γq. In particular, for any link L in S3, the Euler characteristic χgrpKHIpS, Lqq recovers the multi-variable Alexander…

An enhanced Euler characteristic of sutured instanton homology
For a balanced sutured manifold pM,γq, we construct a decomposition of SHIpM,γq with respect to torsions in H “ H1pM ;Zq, which generalizes the decomposition of I7pY q in previous work of the
AN ENHANCED EULER CHARACTERISTIC OF SUTURED INSTANTON HOMOLOGY

SU(2) representations and a large surgery formula
A knot K Ă S is called SUp2q-abundant if for all but finitely many r P Qzt0u, there is an irreducible representation π1pS r pKqq Ñ SUp2q, and the slope r “ u{v ‰ 0 with no irreducible SUp2q
The SO(3) Vortex Equations over Orbifold Riemann Surfaces
We study the general properties of the moduli spaces of SO(3) vortices over orbifold Riemann surfaces and use these to characterize the solutions of the SO(3) monopole equations on Seifert manifolds

Floer Homology and Surface Decompositions
Sutured Floer homology, denoted by SF H, is an invariant of balanced sutured manifolds previously defined by the author. In this paper we give a formula that shows how this invariant changes under
Instanton Floer homology, sutures, and Heegaard diagrams
This paper establishes a new technique that enables us to access some fundamental structural properties of instanton Floer homology. As an application, we establish, for the first time, a relation
Framed instanton homology and concordance
We define two concordance invariants of knots using framed instanton homology. These invariants ν♯ and τ♯ provide bounds on slice genus and maximum self‐linking number, and the latter is a
Heegaard Floer homology and alternating knots.
In an earlier paper, we introduced a knot invariant for a null-homologous knot K in an oriented three-manifold Y , which is closely related to the Heegaard Floer homology of Y . In this paper we
Naturality and Mapping Class Groups in Heegaard Floer Homology
We show that all versions of Heegaard Floer homology, link Floer homology, and sutured Floer homology are natural. That is, they assign concrete groups to each based 3-manifold, based link, and
Heegaard Floer homology and integer surgeries on links
Let L be a link in an integral homology three-sphere. We give a description of the Heegaard Floer homology of integral surgeries on L in terms of some data associated to L, which we call a complete
On the equivalence of contact invariants in sutured Floer homology theories
We recently defined an invariant of contact manifolds with convex boundary in Kronheimer and Mrowka's sutured monopole Floer homology theory. Here, we prove that there is an isomorphism between
Framed instanton homology of surgeries on L-space knots
An important class of three-manifolds are L-spaces, which are rational homology spheres with the smallest possible Floer homology. For knots with an instanton L-space surgery, we compute the framed
