Cylindrical contact homology of a Dehn twist

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We use open book representations of contact 3-manifolds to compute the cylindrical contact homology of a Stein-fillable contact 3-manifold represented by the open book whose monodromy is a positive Dehn twist on a torus with boundary.
