Decorations in Szabo's combinatorial spectral sequence

Szabo in http://arxiv.org/abs/1010.4252 gives a combinatorial candidate for what an explicit calculation of the spectral sequence of branched double covers should yield. In other words he gives a ...

Sarkar's Maslov index formula

I have difficulty understanding Sarkar's maslov index formula in symmetric products from http://arxiv.org/abs/math/0609673. If $D$ is an $n$-sided region with corner points $p_1,\ldots, p_n$ then it ...

Why is Heegaard Floer Homology defined in terms of Sym$^g\Sigma_g$ instead of Pic$^g\Sigma_g$?

Recall the definition of Heegaard Floer homology: $\Sigma_g$ is a closed surface, and $\{\alpha_1,\ldots,\alpha_g\}$ and $\{\beta_1,\ldots,\beta_g\}$ are sets of attaching circles. Then Heegaard ...

path of almost complex structure in the definition of heegaard floer homology

In order to define Heegaard Floer Homology for a connected, closed, oriented 3 manifold, we fix a generic path of nearly symmetric almost complex strucutre $J_s$ over $Sym^g(\Sigma)$. By ...

Is there a version of Seiberg-Witten-Floer or Heegard-Floer homology for 3-manifolds with boundary?

Recently, the Seiberg-Witten-Floer homology created by Kronheimer and Mrowka has important applications in Taubes' proofs of Weinstein conjecture and Arnold Chord Conjecture. Also, Cagatay Kutluhan, ...
