-Title: Cylindrical contact homology of subcritical Stein-fillable contact manifolds and more

- Speaker:Prof. Mei-Lin Yau (National Central University)

- Abstract: In this talk I will consider two examples on which cylindrical contact homology can be defined and explicitly computed, namely subcritical Stein-fillable contact manifolds and a type of contact 3-manifolds associated to positive Dehn twists on a punctured torus. I will focus on the main ideas involved in the computation of their cylindrical contact homologies and discuss the results. This talk is based on my work in cylindrical contact homology.
