In this talk I will discuss a generalizations and/oo applications of bordered Floer homology. After reviewing the basic definitions and constructions, I will focus either on an application to sutured Floer homology developed by Rumen Zarev, or on applications of the theory to the knot Floer homology. (While it would be good to have attended the other two talks this week, this talk shoudl be independent of them.) This is a 2 hour talk.
