Abstract: In symplectic and contact topology, there are different notions of cobordisms. One of them due to Arnold concerns Lagrangian and Legendrian cobordisms between Lagrangian/Legendrian submanifolds. For Lagrangian cobordisms Biran-Cornea showed that monotone ones preserve Floer homology. In the first part of this talk I will show a similar statement for Legendrian cobordisms that are hypertight. Then I will talk about positive Legendrian cobordism. This last part is based on a joint project with Ma├┐lis Limouzineau.
