We construct an enhanced version of knot contact homology, and
show that we can deduce from it the group ring of the knot group together
with the peripheral subgroup. In particular, it completely determines a knot up
to smooth isotopy. The enhancement consists of the (fully noncommutative)
Legendrian contact homology associated to the union of the conormal torus
of the knot and a disjoint cotangent fiber sphere, along with a product on a
filtered part of this homology. As a corollary, we obtain a new, holomorphiccurve
proof of a result of the third author that the Legendrian isotopy class of
the conormal torus is a complete knot invariant.
Almost toric manifolds form a class of singular Lagrangian fibered
symplectic manifolds that include both toric manifolds and the K3
surface. We classify closed almost toric four-manifolds up to diffeomorphism
and indicate precisely the structure of all almost toric fibrations
of closed symplectic four-manifolds. A key step in the proof is a geometric
classification of the singular integral affine structures that can
occur on the base of an almost toric fibration of a closed four-manifold.
As a byproduct we provide a geometric explanation for why a generic
Lagrangian fibration over the two-sphere must have 24 singular fibers.
We prove a version of equivariant split generation of Fukaya category when a symplectic manifold admits a free action of a finite group <i>G</i>. Combining this with some generalizations of Seidel's algebraic frameworks from , we obtain new cases of homological mirror symmetry for some symplectic tori with non-split symplectic forms, which we call <i>special isogenous tori</i>. This extends the work of AbouzaidSmith . We also show that derived Fukaya categories are complete invariants of special isogenous tori.
We formulate a constructive theory of noncommutative Landau-Ginzburg models mirror to symplectic manifolds based on Lagrangian Floer theory. The construction comes with a natural functor from the Fukaya category to the category of matrix factorizations of the constructed Landau-Ginzburg model. As applications, it is applied to elliptic orbifolds, punctured Riemann surfaces and certain non-compact Calabi-Yau threefolds to construct their mirrors and functors. In particular it recovers and strengthens several interesting results of Etingof-Ginzburg, Bocklandt and Smith, and gives a unified understanding of their results in terms of mirror symmetry and symplectic geometry. As an interesting application, we construct an explicit global deformation quantization of an affine del Pezzo surface as a noncommutative mirror to an elliptic orbifold.
We introduce symplectic Calabi–Yau caps to obtain new obstructions to exact fillings. In
particular, they imply that any exact filling of the standard contact structure on the unit
cotangent bundle of a hyperbolic surface has vanishing first Chern class and has the same integral
homology and intersection form as its disk cotangent bundle. This gives evidence to a conjecture
that all of its exact fillings are diffeomorphic to the disk cotangent bundle. As a result, we also
obtain the first infinite family of Stein fillable contact 3-manifolds with uniform bounds on the
Betti numbers of its exact fillings but admitting minimal strong fillings of arbitrarily large b2.
Moreover, we introduce the notion of symplectic uniruled/adjunction caps and uniruled/
adjunction contact structures to present a unified picture to the existing finiteness results on the
topological invariants of exact/strong fillings of a contact 3-manifold. As a byproduct, we find
new classes of contact 3-manifolds with the finiteness properties and extend Wand’s obstruction
of planar contact 3-manifolds to uniruled/adjunction contact structures with complexity zero.

This paper studies a notion of enumerative invariants for stable A-branes, and discusses its relation to invariants defined by spectral and exponential networks. A natural definition of stable A-branes and their counts is provided by the string theoretic origin of the topological A-model. This is the Witten index of the supersymmetric quantum mechanics of a single D3 brane supported on a special Lagrangian in a Calabi-Yau threefold. Geometrically, this is closely related to the Euler characteristic of the A-brane moduli space. Using the natural torus action on this moduli space, we reduce the computation of its Euler characteristic to a count of fixed points via equivariant localization. Studying the A-branes that correspond to fixed points, we make contact with definitions of spectral and exponential networks. We find agreement between the counts defined via the Witten index, and the BPS invariants defined by networks. By extension, our definition also matches with Donaldson-Thomas invariants of B-branes related by homological mirror symmetry.
