Legendrian contact homology for Seifert fibered spaces

Geometry Topology Seminar

1 hour (actually 50 minutes)

In this talk, I'll focus on Seifert fibered spaces whose fiber structure is realized by the Reeb orbits of an appropriate contact form. I'll describe a rigorous combinatorial formulation of Legendrian contact homology for Legendrian knots in these manifolds. This work is joint with J. Sabloff.
