Dear Colleagues and Students,
You are cordially invited to the seminar organized by the Department of Mathematics.
Speaker: Çağatay Kutluhan (University at Buffalo)
“Floer homology and low-dimensional topology”
Abstract: Floer homology is a powerful tool that has had numerous important applications in geometry and topology since its introduction by Andreas Floer over thirty years ago. After a brief introduction to Floer homology, I will talk about Floer homology theories in dimension three and discuss some recent work with Matic, Van Horn–Morris, and Wand regarding applications to classification of contact structures in dimension three.
