This expository paper introduces several ideas in chromatic homotopy theory around Morava's extraordinary E-theories. In particular, we construct various moduli problems closely related to Lubin-Tate deformation theory and study their symmetries. These symmetries are then used in conjunction with the Hopkins-Kuhn-Ravenel character theory to provide formulas for the power operations and the stabilizer group action on the E-cohomology of a finite group.

Lecture 16: Character isomorphisms via tempered cohomology

These are extended notes from a talk at the 202One Talbot Workshop on Ambidexterity. Their purpose is to explain how to use Lurie’s work on elliptic cohomology to recover character isomorphisms in

Chromatic structures in stable homotopy theory

In this survey, we review how the global structure of the stable homotopy category gives rise to the chromatic filtration. We then discuss computational tools used in the study of local chromatic

Level structures on $p$-divisible groups from the Morava $E$-theory of abelian groups

The close relationship between the scheme of level structures on the universal deformation of a formal group and the Morava $E$-cohomology of finite abelian groups has played an important role in the

$E_n$ ring spectra and Dyer-Lashof operations

This is an expository article about power operations and their connection with the study of highly structured ring spectra. In particular, we discuss Dyer-Lashof operations and their evolving role in

Additive power operations in equivariant cohomology

Let $G$ be a finite group and $E$ be an $H_\infty$-ring $G$-spectrum. For any $G$-space $X$ and positive integer $m$, we give an explicit description of the smallest Mackey ideal $\underline{J}$ in



The character of the total power operation

In this paper we compute the total power operation for the Morava $E$-theory of any finite group up to torsion. Our formula is stated in terms of the $GL_n(Q_p)$-action on the Drinfeld ring of full


Let BG be the classifying space of a finite group G. Given a multiplicative cohomology theory E ⁄ , the assignment G 7i! E ⁄ (BG) is a functor from groups to rings, endowed with induction (transfer)

We give an exposition of the proof of a theorem of Hopkins and Miller, that the spectra En admit an action of the Morava stabilizer group.
