Cecilia Karlsson: Orientations of moduli spaces for Legendrian contact homology

In this talk, I will discuss how moduli spaces of Morse flow trees in Legendrian contact homology (LCH) can be oriented in a coherent and computable manner, obtaining a Morse-theoretic way to compute LCH with integer coefficients. This is built on the machinery of capping disks, and I will briefly explain how different systems of capping disks affect the orientations. This, in turn, uses the fact that an exact Lagrangian cobordism with cylindrical Legendrian ends induces a morphism between the LCH-complexes of the ends, which can be proven to hold also with integer coefficients.
