Special Note: Special Time and Place.
I will review some of the major theorems related to the Morava K-theory of infinite loop spaces and show how these results can be used to recover a number of classical theorems in algebraic topology, as well as some generalizations. Some examples include the work of Hodgkin and Snaith on the K(1) homology of J and the work of Madsen-Snaith-Tornehave on detecting infinite loop maps by transfer maps.Date: Tuesday, February 16, 2010
