Abstract

This thesis investigates a construction in contact topology of Legendrian submanifolds called the Legendrian product. We investigate and compute invariants for these Legendrian submanifolds, including the Thurston-Bennequin invariant and Maslov class; Legendrian contact homology for the product of two Legendrian knots; and generating family homology.
