Fiber Floer cohomology and conormal stops

Knots, Strings, Symplectic Geometry and Dualities

01 October 14:00 - 15:00

Johan Asplund - Uppsala University

Let M be a closed orientable spin manifold, and let K be a submanifold of M. In this talk we show that there is a chain level A-infinity isomorphism between wrapped Floer cochains of a cotangent fiber in T*M stopped by the unit conormal of K, and chains of a Morse-theoretic model of the based loop space of the complement of K. The isomorphism is constructed by counts of holomorphic semi-infinite strips.
