Title: Towards an RO(S^1)-graded Witt complex
Speaker: Teena Gerhardt
Speaker Info: MIT
Brief Description:
Special Note:

Understanding fixed point spectra of topological Hochschild homology can aid in algebraic K-theory computations. Taking homotopy groups of such spectra we arrive at TR groups, an integer-graded theory that fits into a rigid algebraic structure, namely a Witt complex. In this talk we will review this classical TR theory, and introduce RO(S^1)-graded TR groups. We will then address the question of how to define the RO(S^1)-graded analog of a Witt complex. We conclude by describing explicit computations of the RO(S^1)-graded TR theory of F_p.
