Topology/Geometry Seminar

Link Floer Homology and (almost) braids

Fraser Binns (Princeton)

Location:  Hill 705
Date & time: Tuesday, 19 September 2023 at 4:00PM - 5:00PM

Abstract:
Link Floer homology is an invariant of links in the three sphere due to Ozsváth-Szabó. It is natural to ask what the topological content of link Floer homology is. Martin showed that Link Floer homology detects braids. In this talk I will discuss a generalisation of this result to “almost braids”. This is work in progress with Subhankar Dey.
