Dehn twists in Heegaard Floer homology

Bijan Sahamie

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 10 (2010) 465–524
Abstract

We derive a new exact sequence in the hat-version of Heegaard Floer homology. As a consequence we see a functorial connection between the invariant of Legendrian knots ̂ and the contact element. As an application we derive two vanishing results of the contact element making it possible to easily read off its vanishing out of a surgery presentation in suitable situations.
