Lagrangian cobordisms via generating families: Construction and geography

Frédéric Bourgeois, Joshua M Sabloff and Lisa Traynor

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 15 (2015) 2439–2477
Abstract

Embedded Lagrangian cobordisms between Legendrian submanifolds are produced by isotopy, spinning, and handle-attachment constructions that employ the technique of generating families. Moreover, any Legendrian with a generating family has an immersed Lagrangian filling with a compatible generating family. These constructions are applied in several directions, in particular to a nonclassical geography question: any graded group satisfying a duality condition can be realized as the generating family homology of a connected Legendrian submanifold in 2n+1 or in the 1–jet space of any compact n–manifold with n 2.
