Abstract

I will present a definition of symplectic homology groups for pairs of Liouville cobordisms with fillings, and explain how these fit into a formalism of homology theory similar to that of Eilenberg and Steenrod. This construction allows to understand form a unified point of view many structural results involving Floer homology groups, and yields new applications. Joint work with Kai Cieliebak.
