Sign refinement for combinatorial link Floer homology
Link Floer homology is an invariant for links which has recently been described entirely in a combinatorial way. Originally constructed with mod 2 coefficients, it was generalized to integer coefficients thanks to a sign refinement. In this paper, thanks to the spin extension of the permutation group we give an alternative construction of the combinatorial link Floer chain complex associated to a grid diagram with integer coefficients. In particular we prove that the sign refinement comes from a 2–cohomological class corresponding to the spin extension of the permutation group.
