Etnyre Contact Surgery and Heegaard Floer Theory File Size: 3MB. The basic Morse theory gives a relationship of a Morse map and a h andle de-composition for a manifold. In this section, we review the no tion of Heegaard split-ting for sutured manifold introduced in [7] and [8], and reve al the relationship with circle-valued Morse maps. Moreover, we present some properti es which are used to.

    The present book is divided into three conceptually distinct parts. In the rst part we lay the foundations of Morse theory (over the reals). The second part consists of applications of Morse theory over the reals, while the last part describes the basics and some applications of complex Morse theory, a.k.a. Picard{Lefschetz theory. Let X be a closed manifold with χ (X) = 0, and let f: X → S 1 be a circle-valued Morse function.

One of the most cited books in mathematics, John Milnor's exposition of Morse theory has been the most important book on the subject for more than forty years. Morse theory was developed in the s by mathematician Marston Morse. (Morse was on the faculty of the Institute for Advanced Study, and Princeton published his Topological Methods in.

It is a large and actively developing domain of differential topology, with applications and connections to many geometrical problems. The aim of the present book is to give a systematic treatment of the geometric foundations of a subfield of that topic, the circle-valued Morse functions, a subfield of Morse by: The central geometrical construction of the circle-valued Morse theory is the Novikov complex, introduced by Novikov in.

It is a generalization to the circle-valued case of its classical predecessor — the Morse complex. Our approach to the subject is based on this construction. This became a starting point of the Morse theory which is now one of the basic parts of differential topology.

Circle-valued Morse theory originated from a problem in hydrodynamics studied by S. Novikov in the early s. Circle-valued Morse theory. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Jump to navigation Jump to search. In mathematics, circle-valued Morse theory studies the topology of a smooth manifold by analyzing the critical points of smooth maps from the manifold to the circle, in the framework of Morse homology.

It is an important special case of Sergei Novikov 's Morse theory of closed one-forms. Let X be a closed manifold with zero Euler characteristic, and let f: X --> S^1 be a circle-valued Morse function.

We define an invariant I which counts closed orbits of the gradient of f, together with flow lines between the critical points. We develop the real-valued and circle-valued Morse theory for M and prove, in particular, that M has the homotopy type of a space obtained from a manifold fibered over a circle, by attaching cells.

simplest version of NovikovÕs construction, we consider a circle-valued Morse function /:XPS1. There is an analogue of the Morse complex which counts gradient ßow lines of /.

In this circle-valued case, to obtain a Þnite count we need to classify ßow lines using some information about their homotopy classes. A minimal way to do this is as.

Proposition Let Γ ⊂ Rm. The Morse theory of circle valued functions f: M → S1 relates the topology of a manifold M to the critical points of f, generalizing the traditional theory of real valued Morse functions M → R.

However, the relationship is somewhat more complicated in the circle valued case. circle-valued morse theory for complex hyperplane arrangements 11 IP MU, G R AD UA TE S CHOOL OF M A TH EM ATI C AL S CI E NC ES, TH E U NI VE RS IT Y OF T OK YO, 3- 8- 1 K O MA BA, M E GU RO.

Circle-valued Morse theory originated from a problem in hydrodynamics studied by S. Novikov in the early s. Nowadays, it is a constantly growing field of contemporary mathematics with applications and connections to many geometrical problems such as Arnold's conjecture in the theory of Lagrangian intersections, fibrations of manifolds.

Circle-valued Morse theory and Reidemeister torsion. Circle valued Morse theory is necessarily more complicated than real valued Morse theory. The Morse-Smale complex CMS(M;f: M!R;v) is an absolute object, describing M on the chain level, with c0(f) >0, cm(f) >0.

This is the algebraic analogue of the fact that every continuous function f: M!Ron a compact space attains an absolute minimum.

Morse discovered that the number of critical points of a smooth function on a manifold is closely related to the topology of the manifold.
