Jennifer Hom, Georgia Tech, Heegaard Floer and homology cobordism
- This event has passed.
We study applications of Heegaard Floer homology to homology cobordism. In particular, to a homology sphere Y, we associate a module HF_conn(Y), called the connected Heegaard Floer homology of Y, and show that this module is invariant under homology cobordism and isomorphic to a summand of HF_red(Y). The definition of this invariant relies on involutive Heegaard Floer homology. This is joint work with Kristen Hendricks and Tye Lidman.
