HTLW02 - 3-manifold workshop

Co-author: Tye Lidman (North Carolina State)
 
I will discuss a Smith-type inequality for regular covering spaces in monopole Floer homology. Using the monopole Floer / Heegaard Floer correspondence, it follows that if a 3-manifold Y admits a p^n-sheeted regular cover that is a Z/p-L-space (for p prime), then Y is a Z/p-L-space. Further, we obtain constraints on surgeries on a knot being regular covers over other surgeries on the same knot, and over surgeries on other knots. This is joint work with Tye Lidman.
