Abstract

Seidel–Smith and Hendricks used equivariant Floer cohomology to define some spectral sequences from symplectic Khovanov homology and Heegaard Floer homology. These spectral sequences give rise to Smith-type inequalities. Similar-looking spectral sequences have been defined by Lee, Bar–Natan, Ozsváth–Szabó, Lipshitz–Treumann, Szabó, Sarkar–Seed–Szabó, and others. In this paper, we give another construction of equivariant Floer cohomology with respect to a finite group action and use it to prove some invariance properties of these spectral sequences; prove that some of these spectral sequences agree; improve Hendricks's Smith-type inequalities; give some theoretical and practical computability results for these spectral sequences; define some new spectral sequences conjecturally related to Sarkar–Seed–Szabó's; and introduce a new concordance homomorphism and concordance invariants. We also digress to prove invariance of Manolescu's reduced symplectic Khovanov homology.
