Cylindrical contact homology of subcritical Stein-fillable contact manifolds

Mei-Lin Yau

Geometry & Topology 8 (2004) 1243–1280

arXiv: math.SG/0409542

Abstract

We use contact handle decompositions and a stabilization process to compute the cylindrical contact homology of a subcritical Stein-fillable contact manifold with vanishing first Chern class, and show that it is completely determined by the homology of a subcritical Stein-filling of the contact manifold.

Keywords
subcritical Stein-fillable contact manifold, cylindrical contact homology, holomorphic curves, contact handles, Reeb vector field
