A positive contactomorphism of a contact manifold $M$ is the end point of a contact isotopy on $M$ that is always positively transverse to the contact structure. Assume that $M$ contains a Legendrian sphere $\Lambda$, and that $(M,\Lambda)$ is fillable by a Liouville domain $(W,\omega)$ with exact Lagrangian $L$ such that $\omega|_{\pi_2(W,L)}=0$. We show that if the exponential growth of the action filtered wrapped Floer homology of $(W,L)$ is positive, then every positive contactomorphism of…

Reeb orbits that force topological entropy
We develop a forcing theory of topological entropy for Reeb flows in dimension three. A transverse link L in a closed contact $3$ -manifold $(Y,\xi )$ is said to force topological
Braid stability and the Hofer metric
In this article we show that the braid type of a set of 1periodic orbits of a non-degenerate Hamiltonian diffeomorphism on a surface is stable under perturbations which are sufficiently small with
A computation of the ring structure in wrapped Floer homology
We give an explicit computation of the ring structure in wrapped Floer homology of real Lagrangians in $A_k$-type Milnor fibers. In the $A_k$-type plumbing description, those Lagrangians correspond


Positive topological entropy for Reeb flows on 3-dimensional Anosov contact manifolds
Let $(M, \xi)$ be a compact contact 3-manifold and assume that there exists a contact form $\alpha_0$ on $(M, \xi)$ whose Reeb flow is Anosov. We show this implies that every Reeb flow on $(M, \xi)$
Rabinowitz Floer homology and symplectic homology
The Rabinowitz-Floer homology groups $RFH_*(M,W)$ are associated to an exact embedding of a contact manifold $(M,\xi)$ into a symplectic manifold $(W,\omega)$. They depend only on the bounded
Cylindrical contact homology and topological entropy
We establish a relation between the growth of the cylindrical contact homology of a contact manifold and the topological entropy of Reeb flows on this manifold. We show that if a contact manifold
Positive topological entropy of Reeb flows on spherizations
Abstract Let M be a closed manifold whose based loop space Ω (M) is “complicated”. Examples are rationally hyperbolic manifolds and manifolds whose fundamental group has exponential growth. Consider
Legendrian contact homology and topological entropy
In this paper we study the growth rate of a version of Legendrian contact homology, which we call strip Legendrian contact homology, in 3-dimensional contact manifolds and its relation to the
Lower complexity bounds for positive contactomorphisms
Let S*Q be the spherization of a closed connected manifold of dimension at least two. Consider a contactomorphism φ that can be reached by a contact isotopy that is everywhere positively transverse
Slow volume growth for Reeb flows on spherizations and contact Bott--Samelson theorems
We give a uniform lower bound for the polynomial complexity of all Reeb flows on the spherization (S*M,\xi) over a closed manifold. Our measure for the dynamical complexity of Reeb flows is slow
Symplectic homology and the Eilenberg-Steenrod axioms
We give a definition of symplectic homology for pairs of filled Liouville cobordisms, and show that it satisfies analogues of the Eilenberg-Steenrod axioms except for the dimension axiom. The
In this paper we construct the Floer homology for an action functional which was introduced by Rabinowitz and prove a vanishing theorem. As an application, we show that there are no displaceable
An open string analogue of Viterbo functoriality
In this preprint, we look at exact Lagrangian submanifolds with Legendrian boundary inside a Liouville domain. The analogue of symplectic cohomology for such submanifolds is called “wrapped Floer
