Surgery obstructions and Heegaard Floer homology
Using Taubes’ periodic ends theorem, Auckly gave examples of toroidal and hyperbolic irreducible integer homology spheres which are not surgery on a knot in the three-sphere. We use Heegaard Floer homology to give an obstruction to a homology sphere being surgery on a knot, and then use this obstruction to construct infinitely many small Seifert fibered examples.
