Computing knot Floer homology in cyclic branched covers

Adam Simon Levine

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 8 (2008) 1163–1190
Abstract

We use grid diagrams to give a combinatorial algorithm for computing the knot Floer homology of the pullback of a knot K S3 in its m–fold cyclic branched cover Σm(K), and we give computations when m = 2 for over fifty three-bridge knots with up to eleven crossings.
