Topology Seminar

Title: Determining Slice Towers
Speaker: Carolyn Yarnall
Speaker Info: University of Virginia
Brief Description:
Special Note:

The slice filtration is a filtration of equivariant spectra developed by Hill, Hopkins, and Ravenel in their solution to the Kervaire Invariant One Problem. I will begin the talk by recalling the definition of the slice filtration along with some of its basic properties. Then I will discuss some computational methods for determining slice towers. Finally, I will provide some specific examples of slice towers for suspensions of the Eilenberg-MacLane spectrum associated to the constant Mackey functor for a cyclic p-group and give an idea of the general pattern that arises in computing such towers.
