Abstract:   In joint work with Peter Ozsvath, we constructed "Heegard Floer homology" groups for closed oriented 3-manifolds. This construction uses Heegaard diagrams and a version of Lagrangian Floer homology in the g-fold symmetric product of the Heegaard surface Sigmag. In this talk we will study some applications, and also a related construction that gives invariants for knots in S3.
