The family of Thom spectra $y(n)$ interpolate between the sphere spectrum and the mod two Eilenberg-MacLane spectrum. Computations of Mahowald, Ravenel, and Shick show that the $E_1$-ring spectrum $y(n)$ has chromatic complexity $n$ for $0\le n\le\infty$. In this paper, we show that relative algebraic K-theory associated to the map $y(n)\to H\mathbb{F}_2$ has chromatic complexity at least $n + 1$, up to a conjecture about the Morava K-theory of inverse limits. This gives evidence for a variant…

Vanishing results for chromatic localizations of algebraic $K$-theory
We show that algebraic $K$-theory preserves $n$-connective $L_{n}^{f}$-equivalences between connective ring spectra, generalizing a result of Waldhausen for rational algebraic $K$-theory to higher
Higher chromatic Thom spectra via unstable homotopy theory
We investigate implications of an old conjecture in unstable homotopy theory related to the Cohen-Moore-Neisendorfer theorem and a conjecture about the $\mathbf{E}_{2}$-topological Hochschild
Commuting unbounded homotopy limits with Morava K-theory
This paper provides conditions for Morava K-theory to commute with certain homotopy limits. These conditions extend previous work on this question by allowing for homotopy limits of sequences of
Ambidexterity and height
We introduce and study the notion of \emph{semiadditive height} for higher semiadditive $\infty$-categories, which generalizes the chromatic height. We show that the higher semiadditive structure
Purity in chromatically localized algebraic $K$-theory.
We prove a purity property in telescopically localized algebraic $K$-theory of ring spectra: For $n\geq 1$, the $T(n)$-localization of $K(R)$ only depends on the $T(0)\oplus \dots \oplus
Redshift and multiplication for truncated Brown-Peterson spectra
We equip $\mathrm{BP} \langle n \rangle$ with an $\mathbb{E}_3$-$\mathrm{BP}$-algebra structure, for each prime $p$ and height $n$. The algebraic $K$-theory of this $\mathbb{E}_3$-ring is of


Detecting the $\beta$-family in iterated algebraic K-theory of finite fields
The Lichtenbaum-Quillen conjecture (LQC) relates special values of zeta functions to algebraic K-theory groups. The Ausoni-Rognes red-shift conjectures generalize the LQC to higher chromatic heights
The localization sequence for the algebraic K-theory of topological K-theory
We verify a conjecture of Rognes by establishing a localization cofiber sequence of spectra $K(\mathbb{Z})\to K(ku)\to K(KU) \to\Sigma K(\mathbb{Z})$ for the algebraic K-theory of topological
Descent in algebraic $K$-theory and a conjecture of Ausoni–Rognes
Let $A \to B$ be a $G$-Galois extension of rings, or more generally of $\mathbb{E}_\infty$-ring spectra in the sense of Rognes. A basic question in algebraic $K$-theory asks how close the map $K(A)
The homotopy groups of the algebraic K–theory of the sphere spectrum
We calculate the homotopy groups of $K(\mathbb S)$ in terms of the homotopy groups of $K(\mathbb Z)$, the homotopy groups of ${\mathbb C}P^\infty_{-1}$, and the homotopy groups of $\mathbb S$. This
Topological Hochschild homology and integral p$p$-adic Hodge theory
In mixed characteristic and in equal characteristic p$p$ we define a filtration on topological Hochschild homology and its variants. This filtration is an analogue of the filtration of algebraic
On the algebraic K-theory of the complex K-theory spectrum
Let p≥5 be a prime, let ku be the connective complex K-theory spectrum, and let K(ku) be the algebraic K-theory spectrum of ku. In this paper we study the p-primary homotopy type of the spectrum
We introduce the notion of a Galois extension of commutative S-algebras (E1 ring spectra), often localized with respect to a flxed homology theory. There are numerous examples, including some
Algebraic K-theory of topological K-theory
We are interested in the arithmetic of ring spectra. To make sense of this we must work with structured ring spectra, such as S-algebras [EKMM], symmetric ring spectra [HSS] or Γ-rings [Ly]. We will
The cyclotomic trace and algebraic K-theory of spaces
The cyclotomic trace is a map from algebraic K-theory of a group ring to a certain topological refinement of cyclic homology. The target is naturally mapped to topological Hochschild homology, and
The smooth Whitehead spectrum of a point at odd regular primes
Let p be an odd regular prime, and assume that the Lichtenbaum{Quillen conjecture holds for K(Z[1=p]) at p. Then the p-primary homotopy type of the smooth Whitehead spectrum Wh () is described. A
