Braid monodromy, orderings and transverse invariants

Olga Plamenevskaya

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 18 (2018) 3691–3718

A closed braid β naturally gives rise to a transverse link K in the standard contact 3–space. We study the effect of the dynamical properties of the monodromy of β, such as right-veering, on the contact-topological properties of K and the values of transverse invariants in Heegaard Floer and Khovanov homologies. Using grid diagrams and the structure of Dehornoy’s braid ordering, we show that θ̂(K) HFK̂(m(K)) is nonzero whenever β has fractional Dehn twist coefficient C > 1. (For a 3–braid, we get a sharp result: θ̂0 if and only if the braid is right-veering.)
