# Instanton Floer homology with Lagrangian boundary conditions

@article{Salamon2006InstantonFH, title={Instanton Floer homology with Lagrangian boundary conditions}, author={Dietmar A. Salamon and Katrin Wehrheim}, journal={Geometry \& Topology}, year={2006}, volume={12}, pages={747-918} }

In this paper we define instanton Floer homology groups for a pair consisting of a compact oriented 3–manifold with boundary and a Lagrangian submanifold of the moduli space of flat SU.2/–connections over the boundary. We carry out the construction for a general class of irreducible, monotone boundary conditions. The main examples of such Lagrangian submanifolds are induced from a disjoint union of handle bodies such that the union of the 3–manifold and the handle bodies is an integral homology… Expand
