In this talk, we’ll introduce the field of chromatic homotopy theory, which is where all the major advancements on the πS ∗ problem have come from in the past 30+ years. Our express goal will be to study the Picard groups of the K(n)-localized stable categories, but to even make sense of that we’ll have to go on a fairly deep safari through chromatic homotopy. Technical aspects will be mostly kept to a minimum, but some passing familiarity with algebraic geometry will help.
