University of Arkansas Topology Seminar: 11/9/2017

Speaker: Jeremy Van Horn-Morris

Title: An introduction to Heegaard Floer homology

We'll walk through the background, construction and motivation of Heegaard Floer homology for oriented 3–manifolds. While this will echo several themes from previous talks, the only background needed for this talk is basic exposure to algebraic topology and the construction of chain complexes.
