A holomorphic 0-surgery model for open books

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

4 Scopus citations


We give a simple model in ℂ2 of the 0-surgery along a fibered knot in a closed 3-manifoldc M to yield a mapping torus M̂ . This model allows explicit relations between pseudoholomorphic curves in ℝ×M and in ℝ×M̂. It can be applied to the computation of the contact homology of open books.
