Abstract

This paper concerns Floer homology for periodic orbits and for a Lagrangian intersection problem on the cotangent bundle T^*M of a compact orientable manifold M. The first result is a new L^∞ estimate for the solutions of the Floer equation, which allows us to deal with a larger - and more natural - class of Hamiltonians. The second and main result is a new construction of the isomorphism between the Floer homology and the singular homology of the free loop space of M in the periodic case, or of the based loop space of M in the Lagrangian intersection problem. The idea for the construction of such an isomorphism is to consider a Hamiltonian that is the Legendre transform of a Lagrangian on T M and to construct an isomorphism between the Floer complex and the Morse complex of the classical Lagrangian action functional on the space of W^{1,2} free or based loops on M.
