For g > 0, we construct g + 1 Legendrian embeddings of a surface of genus g into J(1)(R-2) = R-5 which lie in pairwise distinct Legendrian isotopy classes and which all have g + 1 transverse Ree ... 

Orientations of Morse flow trees in Legendrian contact homology

Let L be a spin Legendrian submanifold of the 1-jet space of a smooth manifold. We prove that the Legendrian contact homology of L with integer coefficients can be computed using Morse flow trees. We

Knot contact homology

The conormal lift of a link K in ℝ3 is a Legendrian submanifold ΛK in the unit cotangent bundle U∗ℝ3 of ℝ3 with contact structure equal to the kernel of the Liouville form. Knot contact homology, a

Legendrian Products

This paper introduces two constructions of Legendrian submanifolds of P × R, called Legendrian products and spinning, and computes their classical invariants, the Thurston-Bennequin invariant and the

On Legendrian products and twist spuns

The Legendrian product of two Legendrian knots, as defined by Lambert-Cole, is a Legendrian torus. We show that this Legendrian torus is a twist spun whenever one of the Legendrian knot components is

Skein recursion for holomorphic curves and invariants of the unknot

We determine the skein-valued Gromov-Witten partition function for a single toric Lagrangian brane in C or the resolved conifold. We first show geometrically they must satisfy a certain

Legendrian Weaves: N-graph Calculus, Flag Moduli and Applications

We study a class of Legendrian surfaces in contact five-folds by encoding their wavefronts via planar combinatorial structures. We refer to these surfaces as Legendrian weaves, and to the

Turaev torsion of ribbon Legendrians

We introduce a Legendrian invariant built out of the Turaev torsion of generating families. We use this invariant to study ribbon Legendrians, a class of Legendrian links in the 1-jet space of a

On the compactification of bounded edge Morse flow trees

Let L ⊂ J 1 ( M ) be a closed Legendrian submanifold of the 1-jet space of a closed Riemannian manifold ( M, g ) and consider the moduli space L ( N ) of Morse flow trees in L with at most N edges and

Cubic Planar Graphs and Legendrian Surface Theory

We study Legendrian surfaces determined by cubic planar graphs. Graphs with distinct chromatic polynomials determine surfaces that are not Legendrian isotopic, thus giving many examples of

Legendrian Approximations

We find a procedure for constructing a Legendrian approximation of an embedded oriented closed surface in R with the standard contact structure following methods similar to those that are commonly

A nondisplaceable Lagrangian torus in T*S2

We show that if a Legendrian knot in a standard contact space ℝ3 possesses a generating family, then there exists an augmentation of the Chekanov–Eliashberg differential graded algebra so that the

We extend knot contact homology to a theory over the ring $\mathbb{Z}[\lambda^{\pm 1},\mu^{\pm 1}]$, with the invariant given topologically and combinatorially. The improved invariant, which is

Differential algebra of Legendrian links

Let the space R = {(q, p, u)} be equipped with the standard contact form α = du− pdq. A link L ⊂ R3 is called Legendrian if the restriction of α to L vanishes. Two Legendrian links are said to be
