Papers written by undergraduate students I have advised are here.

- A technology demonstration (i.e., far pre-beta version) of a package to compute Heegaard Floer invariants using bordered Floer homology is here.
- You will need Sage to run it.
- This is version 0.2 (August 5, 2011), the second release on the web. It corrects several (critical) bugs found by Bohua Zhan.
- This version contains new installation options, thanks to Nathan Dunfield. See the README (also courtesy of Dunfield).
- Bohua Zhan has ported this program to C++. The port is much faster. Send him e-mail if you are interested in it.
- Bohua Zhan also has a Sage rewrite and extension of the code, available on GitHub.
- Partial documentation is included, in a PDF called BordProgDocs
- Please e-mail me if you find bugs. (I'm sure they're there.) Programming style criticism also accepted.

- An extension of part of the bordered Floer package was used to perform computations for "Noncommutative Hodge-to-de Rham spectral sequence and the Heegaard Floer homology of double covers".
- The extension is available here.
- This is version 1 (March 14, 2012).
- Like the paper, this extension is joint work with David Treumann.
- Partial documentation is included.
- The extension is Copyright 2012 Robert Lipshitz and David Treumann.

^{1}and Sq^{2}on Khovanov homology, written mainly by Sucharit Sarkar. Used in and based on our paper "A Steenrod square on Khovanov homology". - Code for computing the refined s-invariant from Sq
