Geometry/Physics Seminar

Title: Computing Heegaard Floer Homology
Speaker: Professor Sucharit Sarkar
Speaker Info: Princeton
Brief Description:
Special Note:

We will review the definition and a few properties of Heegaard Floer homology for three-manifolds and knots inside three-manifolds. We will then describe an algorithm to compute the invariant and give an application in terms of arc presentations for knots. Time permitting, we will show how this homology theory can be extended to a homotopy theory in certain cases.
