# The Topology of a Subspace of the Legendrian Curves on a Closed Contact 3-Manifold

@article{Maalaoui2013TheTO, title={The Topology of a Subspace of the Legendrian Curves on a Closed Contact 3-Manifold}, author={Ali Maalaoui and Vittorio Martino}, journal={Advanced Nonlinear Studies}, year={2013}, volume={14}, pages={393 - 426} }

Abstract In this paper we study a subspace of the space of Legendrian loops and we show that the injection of this space into the full loop space is an S1-equivariant homotopy equivalence. This space can be also seen as the space of zero Maslov index Legendrian loops and it shows up as a suitable space of variations in contact form geometry.
