Title: Cellular models for E-infinity ring spectra
Speaker: Andrew Baker
Speaker Info: University of Glasgow
Brief Description:
Special Note: Unusual day

In modern categories of E-infinity ring spectra cellular constructions are possible and this allows for methods of calculating based on them. I will outline how this works and then consider a very old problem: Does the Brown-Peterson spectrum at a prime p admit an E-infinity structure?
