Heegaard Floer invariants in codimension one

25 Jul 2017 Levine Adam Simon Ruberman Daniel

Using Heegaard Floer homology, we construct a numerical invariant for any smooth, oriented $4$-manifold $X$ with the homology of $S^1 \times S^3$. Specifically, we show that for any smoothly embedded $3$-manifold $Y$ representing a generator of $H_3(X)$, a suitable version of the Heegaard Floer $d$ invariant of $Y$, defined using twisted coefficients, is a diffeomorphism invariant of $X$...
