Moving basepoints and the induced automorphisms of link Floer homology

Sucharit Sarkar

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 15 (2015) 2479–2515
Abstract

Given an l–component pointed oriented link (L,p) in an oriented three-manifold Y , one can construct its link Floer chain complex CFL(Y,L,p) over the polynomial ring F2[U1,,Ul]. Moving the basepoint pi Li once around the link component Li induces an automorphism of CFL(Y,L,p). We study a (possibly different) automorphism of CFL(Y,L,p) defined explicitly in terms of holomorphic disks; for links in S3, we show that these two automorphisms are the same.
