# Holomorphic disks and topological invariants for closed three-manifolds

@article{Ozsvath2001HolomorphicDA, title={Holomorphic disks and topological invariants for closed three-manifolds}, author={Peter S. Ozsvath and Zolt{\'a}n Imre Szab{\'o}}, journal={Annals of Mathematics}, year={2001}, volume={159}, pages={1027-1158} }

The aim of this article is to introduce certain topological invariants for closed, oriented three-manifolds Y, equipped with a Spiny structure. Given a Heegaard splitting of Y = U 0o U Σ U 1 , these theories are variants of the Lagrangian Floer homology for the g-fold symmetric product of Σ relative to certain totally real subspaces associated to U 0 and U 1 .
