Symplectic homology is a very useful tool in symplectic topology, but it can be hard to compute explicitly. We will describe a procedure for computing symplectic homology using counts of pseudo-holomorphic spheres. These counts can sometimes be performed using Gromov-Witten theory. This method is applicable to a class of manifolds that are obtained by removing, from a closed symplectic manifold, a symplectic hypersurface of codimension 2. This is joint work with Samuel Lisi.
