Epsilon

The invariant epsilon is a Heegaard Floer theoretic invariant defined in Hom [1]. epsilon(K) takes values in {-1, 0, 1} and is associated to the knot Floer complex of a knot. It is a concordance invariant. Values of epsilon in the database were computed using a program written by Zoltan Szabo, available at [3].
