In this talk, we explore some properties and notable constructions of taut foliations. We give an overview of Palmeira’s theorem, which describes the topology of the foliation induced on the universal cover of a manifold by a taut foliation. We then discuss the notion of branching in the leaf…

The existence of a taut foliation on a three-manifold has significant topological and geometric consequences.  In this talk, we will introduce foliations, including several examples, and define the notion of tautness (as well as several equivalent conditions).  To illustrate the…

Abstract: One motivation for the theory of 3-manifold foliations is to generalize some constructions in 2 dimensions which greatly simplify the topology of surfaces. In this talk we will discuss this 2-dimensional theory. We will introduce laminations of surfaces and see how they can be used to…

In order to define (Hamiltonian or Lagrangian) Floer homology in characteristic 0 (which is desirable in the most general setting for orbifold reasons) it is necessary to provide orientations for moduli spaces of holomorphic curves which are compatible with their…
