Introducing meridional cusps 

Abstract: I will define taut foliations and branched surfaces in 3-manifolds, and describe a search for co-oriented taut foliations using branched surfaces as the primary tool. This search is inspired by results from Heegaard Floer homology.  This work is joint with Charles Delman.
