Local contact homology with integer coefficients II

Continuing the previous post, I will now (1) outline how, for a nondegenerate contact form with no contractible Reeb orbits, one can define a version of contact homology with integer coefficients, analogously to the Bourgeois-Oancea definition of -equivariant symplectic homology … Continue reading

Local contact homology with integer coefficients I

In a recent preprint, Bourgeois and Oancea define -equivariant symplectic homology, and show that if the transversality needed to define linearized contact homology holds, then these two homologies are isomorphic. For a while I was bothered by an apparent paradox. … Continue reading
