Cable knots and involutive Heegaard Floer homology (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Heegaard Floer homology (and its variants) carries an intrinsic symmetry, which conjecturally corresponds to the Pin(2)-equivariance in Seiberg-Witten Floer homology. By exploiting the symmetry, we prove that (odd,1)-cables of the figure-eight knots are linearly independent in the concordance group of rationally slice knots, and present a first example of rationally slice knots of complexity 1 which are not slice. Furthermore, we establish an explicit connection between involutive knot Floer theory and involutive bordered Floer theory of knot complements, and use it to prove a similar result for iterated cables of figure-eight knots. A part of this talk is based on a joint work with J. Hom, M. Stoffregen, and J. Park.
