Title: Heegaard Floer homology for three-manifolds.
Abstract: This talk will give an introduction to Heegaard Flor homology for closed
oriented three-dimensional manifolds. The invariant is defined
with the use of Heegaard decompositions and Lagrangian Floer homology. After describing
the construction, we will discuss applications and also some techniques to compute
Heegaard Floer homology.
