This workhsop will take place at the station biologique of Besse (birth place of Nicolas Bourbaki) from the 12th to the 16th of February 2024. For coming you'll need to arrive in Clermont-Ferrand by the 11th of February afternoon. A bus shuttle will take you to the Station Biologique. Note neither towels nor toiletories are provided by the Station biologique.
This workshop aims at bringing together mostly young
researchers to spend one week studying a topic in low
dimensional topology. Part of the week is dedicated to
detailed talks taking time to introduce the background of
the theory necessary to tackle more recent questions. Time
is voluntarily made available to encourage discussion that
the presentations will generate.
This is the fourth edition of the series "Between the Waves". We studied relations between homological and quantum invariants
in low-dimensional topology in the first edition. The second edition focused on relations between knots/knotted
objects and 4-manifolds. The third edition had topic Morse and Floer theory.
The aim of this fourth edition is to detail the definition of Knot Floer homology and understand how this invariant detect the genus of knots.
We endebted to Paolo Ghiggini for his contribution to the program.
