We examine the Legendrian analogue of the topological satellite construction for knots, and deduce some results for specific Legendrian knots and links in standard contact three-space and the solid torus. In particular, we show that the Chekanov-Eliashberg contact homology invariants of Legendrian Whitehead doubles of stabilized knots contain no nonclassical information. 
Contact surgeries and the transverse invariant in knot Floer homology
Abstract We study naturality properties of the transverse invariant in knot Floer homology under contact (+1)-surgery. This can be used as a calculational tool for the transverse invariant. As a
Legendrian Satellites and Decomposable Concordances
We investigate the ramifications of the Legendrian satellite construction on the relation of Lagrangian cobordism between Legendrian knots. Under a simple hypothesis, we construct a Lagrangian
Legendrian solid-torus links
Differential graded algebra invariants are constructed for Legendrian links in the 1-jet space of the circle. In parallel to the theory for R 3 , Poincare-Chekanov polynomials and characteristic al-
Legendrian knots in overtwisted contact structures
We prove that two Legendrian knots in a contact structure which is trivializable as a plane bundle are Legendrian isotopic provided that (1) they are isotopic as framed knots, (2) they have the same
A family of non-split topologically slice links with arbitrarily large smooth slice genus
We construct an infinite family of topologically slice 2--component boundary links $\ell_i$, none of which is smoothly concordant to a split link, such that $g_4(\ell_i)=i$.

A new family of links topologically, but not smoothly, concordant to the Hopf link
We give new examples of 2-component links with linking number one and unknotted components that are topologically concordant to the positive Hopf link, but not smoothly so - in fact they are not
Bordered Legendrian knots and sutured Legendrian invariants
In this thesis we apply techniques from the bordered and sutured variants of Floer homology to study Legendrian knots. First, given a front diagram for a Legendrian knot K in S₃ which has been split
Knot concordance and homology cobordism
We consider the question: "If the zero-framed surgeries on two oriented knots in the 3-sphere are integral homology cobordant, preserving the homology class of the positive meridians, are the knots
Satellite operators with distinct iterates in smooth concordance
Let P be a knot in an unknotted solid torus (i.e. a satellite operator or pattern), K a knot in S 3 and P (K) the satellite of K with pattern P. For any satellite operator P , this correspondence


Generating function polynomials for legendrian links
It is shown that, in the 1{jet space of the circle, the swapping and the flyping procedures, which produce topologically equivalent links, can produce nonequivalent legendrian links. Each component
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
