### Laplace eigenvalue and floer theory

I'm trying to study the spectrum operator via Floer Theory. The idea is to consider the Rayleigh quotient as an operator on the Hilbert space $W^{1,2}$ and to study it's negative gradient flow. Any ...

### Parametric Sard-Smale theorem - when is the generic set open?

I am learning Morse/Floer Theory and in my work on my master's thesis I want to apply the parametric Sard-Smale theorem. I.e. I consider a Banach bundle $\mathcal{L} \to \mathcal{M}\times \mathcal{G}$ ...

### Regularity of the taut foliation

In Eliashberg-Thurston's famous paper "Confoliations" Corollary 3.2.11, they proved that Irreducible three manifold with $b_{1}>0$ admits semi-fillable contact structure using Gabai's theorem in ...

### Reference Request: “Neck Stretching Procedure” (In Symplectic Field Theory)

I've been reading some papers in Symplectic Geometry which refer to something called "Stretching the neck", and give reference to Eliashberg, Givental and Hofer's SFT paper (http://arxiv.org/abs/math/...

### Gromov-Floer compactness for C^0 convergence of complex structure/ C^1 convergence of Hamiltonian

Let $M$ be a compact symplectic manifold, $J$ a possibly surface dependent complex structure, and $H$ a Hamiltonian on $M$. I am interested in a variant of Gromov-Floer convergence for solutions of ...

### Question about transversality for PSS map in Hamiltonian Floer cohomology

Let X be a compact symplectic manifold and $H_t,J_t$ a Floer regular pair of $\mathbb{S}^1$ dependent Hamiltonians and complex structures. The PSS maps are defined by considering $\mathbb{C}$ with a ...

### Where are $+$, $-$ and $\infty$ in bordered Heegaard-Floer theory?

Here goes my first MO-question. I've just read Lipshitz, Ozsváth and Thurston's recently updated "A tour of bordered Floer theory". To set the stage let me give two quotes from this paper. ...

### SFT gluing on chain level in Floer homology?

I came across a new type of gluing in the FOOO paper http://arxiv.org/abs/1002.1660 (maybe not so new to experts). The situation is as follows: one considers a relative (to lagrangian) class and ...

### Length of Floer flow lines

Suppose $(X,\omega)$ is a closed symplectic manifold. Let $H$ denote a time-dependent Hamiltonian, all of whose critical points are non-degenerate, and fix an $\omega$-compatible time dependent family ...

### Instanton homology - reference request

What is the best reference for someone (i.e. me) trying to learn Instanton Floer homology? Assume I already know symplectic Floer homology.

### Almost complex structures in Floer theory

When defining the Floer cohomology $HF(L_0,L_1)$ of 2 Lagrangians in a symplectic manifold $(M,\omega)$, one first has to choose some extra data such a 1-parameter family of almost complex structures ...

### The “miracle” of Heegard Floer.

Taking tori in symmetric products and "miraculously" proving that the Floer homology is independent of choices always seemed, well, miraculous. Some time ago Max Lipyanski explained to me the origins ...
