‘Koszul duality’ is a phenomenon which algebraists are fond of, and has previously been studied in the context of '(bordered) Heegaard Floer homology' by Lipshitz, Ozsváth and Thurston. In this talk, I shall discuss an occurrence of Koszul duality which links older constructions in Heegaard Floer homology with the bordered Heegaard Floer homology of three-manifolds with torus boundary. I shan’t assume any existing knowledge of Koszul duality or any form of Heegaard Floer homology.
