Zabrodsky lecture series: Peter Ozsváth (Princeton) "Bordered Floer homology"

Abstract: Bordered Floer homology is an invariant for three-manifolds with boundary, defined in collaboration with Robert Lipshitz and Dylan Thurston. The invariant associates a DG algebra to a parameterized surface, and a module over that algebra to a three-manifold with boundary. I will explain how methods from bordered Floer homology can be used to give a tidy description of knot Floer homology. This is joint work with Zoltan Szabo.
