Knot Floer homology (HFK) is a bi-graded vector space, which is an invariant of a knot in S3. Given a (decorated) knot concordance between two knots K and L (that is, an embedded annulus in S3 x [0,1] that K and L co-bound), Juhász defined a map between their knot Floer homologies. We prove that this map preserves the bigrading of HFK and is always non-zero. This has some interesting applications, in particular the existence of a non-zero element in HFK associated to each properly embedded disc in B4 whose boundary is the knot K in S3. This is joint work with András Juhász.
