This is a survey of bordered Heegaard Floer homology, an extension of the Heegaard Floer invariant HF-hat to 3-manifolds with boundary. Emphasis is placed on how bordered Heegaard Floer homology can be used for computations. 
Heegaard Floer Homologies: lecture notes
These are lecture notes from a series of lectures at the SMF summer school on "Geometric and Quantum Topology in Dimension 3", June 2014. The focus is on Heegaard Floer homology from the perspectiveExpand
Heegaard Floer Homologies and Rational Cuspidal Curves. Lecture notes
This is an expanded version of the lecture course the second author gave at Winterbraids VI in Lille in February 2016.
The Alexander module, Seifert forms, and categorification
We show that bordered Floer homology provides a categorification of a topological quantum field theory (TQFT) described by Donaldson (Proceedings of the Kirbyfest, Berkeley, CA, 1998, Geometry &Expand
A geometric spectral sequence in Khovanov homology
The aim of this paper is to introduce and study a geometric spectral sequence in Khovanov homology. The construction was motivated by a similar spectral sequence from Khovanov homology to HeegaardExpand
Cable knots are not thin.
We prove that the $(p,q)$-cable of a non-trivial knot is not Floer homologically thin. Using this and a theorem of Ian Zemke in \cite{zemke}, we find a larger class of satellite knots, containingExpand
Bordered Floer homology and existence of incompressible tori in homology spheres
Let $Y$ be a homology sphere which contains an incompressible torus. We show that $Y$ cannot be an $L$ -space, i.e. the rank of $\widehat{\text{HF}}(Y)$ is greater than $1$ . In fact, if the homologyExpand
Pin(2)‐monopole Floer homology, higher compositions and connected sums
We study the behavior of Pin (2)-monopole Floer homology under connected sums. After constructing a (partially defined) A∞-module structure on the Pin (2)-monopole Floer chain complex of aExpand
Floer homology and splicing knot complements
We obtain a formula for the Heegaard Floer homology (hat theory) of the threemanifold Y.K1;K2/ obtained by splicing the complements of the knots Ki Yi , iD 1;2, in terms of the knot Floer homology ofExpand
Correction to the article Floer homology and splicing knot complements
This note corrects the mistakes in the splicing formulas of the paper "Floer homology and splicing knot complements". The mistakes are the result of the incorrect assumption that for a knot $K$Expand
A–infinity algebras, strand algebras, and contact categories
In previous work we showed that the contact category algebra of a quadrangulated surface is isomorphic to the homology of a strand algebra from bordered sutured Floer theory. Being isomorphic to theExpand


HF=HM, I : Heegaard Floer homology and Seiberg–Witten Floer homology
Let M be a closed, connected and oriented 3-manifold. This article is the first of a five part series that constructs an isomorphism between the Heegaard Floer homology groups of M and theExpand
On rational blow-downs in Heegaard-Floer homology
Motivated by a result of L.P. Roberts on rational blow-downs in Heegaard-Floer homology, we study such operations along 3-manifolds that arise as branched double covers of $S^{3}$ along severalExpand
An algorithm for computing some Heegaard Floer homologies
In this paper, we give an algorithm to compute the hat version of Heegaard Floer homology of a closed oriented three-manifold. This method also allows us to compute the filtration coming from aExpand
The equivalence of Heegaard Floer homology and embedded contact homology via open book decompositions II
This paper is the sequel to "The equivalence of Heegaard Floer homology and embedded contact homology via open book decompositions I" and is devoted to proving some of the technical parts of theExpand
HF=HM, V : Seiberg–Witten Floer homology and handle additions
This is the last of five papers that construct an isomorphism between the Seiberg-Witten Floer homology and the Heegaard Floer homology of a given compact, oriented 3-manifold.
Tour of bordered Floer theory
This survey explains the formal structure and construction of bordered Floer homology and sketches how it can be used to compute some aspects of Heegaard Floer theory. Expand
Knot doubling operators and bordered Heegaard Floer homology
We use bordered Heegaard Floer homology to compute the τ invariant of a family of satellite knots obtained via twisted infection along two components of the Borromean rings, a generalization ofExpand
Heegaard Floer homology as morphism spaces
In this paper we prove another pairing theorem for bordered Floer homology. Unlike the original pairing theorem, this one is stated in terms of homomorphisms, not tensor products. The presentExpand
Fukaya categories of symmetric products and bordered Heegaard-Floer homology
The main goal of this paper is to discuss a symplectic interpretation of Lipshitz, Ozsvath and Thurston's bordered Heegaard-Floer homology in terms of Fukaya categories of symmetric products andExpand
