Morse Structures on Partial Open Books with Extendable Monodromy

Joan Licata, Daniel Mathews

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


The first author in recent work with D. Gay developed the notion of a Morse structure on an open book as a tool for studying closed contact 3-manifolds. We extend the notion of Morse structure to extendable partial open books in order to study contact 3-manifolds with convex boundary.
