Symplectic Floer homology of area-preserving surface diffeomorphisms

Andrew Cotton-Clay

Geometry & Topology 13 (2009) 2619–2674
Abstract

The symplectic Floer homology HF(ϕ) of a symplectomorphism ϕ: Σ Σ encodes data about the fixed points of ϕ using counts of holomorphic cylinders in × Mϕ, where Mϕ is the mapping torus of ϕ. We give an algorithm to compute HF(ϕ) for ϕ a surface symplectomorphism in a pseudo-Anosov or reducible mapping class, completing the computation of Seidel’s HF(h) for h any orientation-preserving mapping class.
