The twisted Floer homology of torus bundles

Full-text: Open access


We prove an exact sequence for ω–twisted Heegaard Floer homology. As a corollary, given a torus bundle Y over the circle and a cohomology class [ω]H2(Y;) which evaluates nontrivially on the fiber, we compute the Heegaard Floer homology of Y with twisted coefficients in the universal Novikov ring.
