Quasistabilization and basepoint moving maps in link Floer homology

Ian Zemke

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 17 (2017) 3461–3518

We analyze the effect of adding, removing, and moving basepoints on link Floer homology. We prove that adding or removing basepoints via a procedure called quasistabilization is a natural operation on a certain version of link Floer homology, which we call CFLUV . We consider the effect on the full link Floer complex of moving basepoints, and develop a simple calculus for moving basepoints on the link Floer complexes. We apply it to compute the effect of several diffeomorphisms corresponding to moving basepoints. Using these techniques we prove a conjecture of Sarkar about the map on the full link Floer complex induced by a finger move along a link component.
