Topology and Geometry Seminar: "Bordered methods in knot Floer homology" Peter Ozsvath, Princeton University

Abstract: Knot Floer homology is an invariant for knots in the three-sphere defined using methods from symplectic geometry. I will describe a new algebraic formulation of this invariant which leads to a reasonably efficient computation of these invariants. This is joint work with Zoltan Szabo.
