In this series of talks I will begin by discussing the idea of studying smooth manifolds and their submanifolds using the symplectic (and contact) geometry of their cotangent bundles. I will then discuss Legendrian contact homology, a powerful invariant of Legendrian submanifolds of contact manifolds. After discussing the theory of contact homology, examples and useful computational techniques, I will combine this with the conormal discussion to define Knot Contact Homology and discuss its many wonders properties and conjectures concerning its connection to other invariants of knots in S^3.
