The notion of a K3 spectrum is introduced in analogy with that of an elliptic spectrum and it is shown that there are ‘enough’ K3 spectra in the sense that for all K3 surfaces X in a suitable moduli stack of K3 surfaces there is a K3 spectrum whose underlying ring is isomorphic to the local ring of the moduli stack in X with respect to the etale topology, and similarly for the ring of formal functions on the formal deformation space. 



On a stratification of the moduli of K3 surfaces

Abstract.In this paper we give a characterization of the height of K3 surfaces in characteristic p>0. This enables us to calculate the cycle classes in families of K3 surfaces of the loci where the

Moduli Stacks of Polarized K3 Surfaces in Mixed Characteristic

In this note we define moduli functors of (primitively) polarized K3 spaces. We show that they are representable by Deligne-Mumford stacks over Spec(Z). Further, we look at K3 spaces with a level

Topological Modular Forms, the Witten Genus, and the Theorem of the Cube

There is a rick mathematical structure attached to the cobordism invariants of manifolds. In the cases described by the index theorem, a generalized cohomology theory is used to express the global

Singularities of the Height Strata in the Moduli of K3 Surfaces

Moduli spaces of varieties in characteristic p are stratified by Newton polygons. For example, the moduli space of polarized K3 surfaces of degreedadmits a stratification by the height h. Using the

Periodic Cohomology Theories Defined by Elliptic Curves

We use bordism theory to construct periodic cohomology theories, which we call elliptic cohomology, for which the cohomology of a point is a ring of modular functions. These are complex-oriented

Structured Ring Spectra: Moduli spaces of commutative ring spectra

Let E be a homotopy commutative ring spectrum, and suppose the ring of cooperations E∗E is flat over E∗. We wish to address the following question: given a commutative E∗-algebra A in E∗E-comodules,


K homology is thus algebraically determined from complex cobordism as an MU∗ module. Their proof used the fact that K∗(−) is already known to be a homology theory, but the theorem raised the question
