Jennifer Hom, Georgia Tech, Heegaard Floer and homology cobordism

February 28 | 10:40 am - 11:30 am EDT

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…

Elmas Irmak, University of Michigan, Simplicial Maps of Complexes of Curves and Mapping Class Groups of Surfaces

February 28 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

I will talk about recent developments on simplicial maps of complexes of curves on both orientable and nonorientable surfaces. I will also talk about joint work with Prof. Luis Paris. We prove that on a compact, connected, nonorientable surface of genus…
