# Orientations of Morse flow trees in Legendrian contact homology

@article{Karlsson2015OrientationsOM, title={Orientations of Morse flow trees in Legendrian contact homology}, author={Cecilia Karlsson}, journal={arXiv: Symplectic Geometry}, year={2015} }

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 also give an algorithm for explicitly computing the sign of a rigid flow tree.
