Ring Spectra Which Are Thom Complexes

  title={Ring Spectra Which Are Thom Complexes},
  author={Mark Mahowald},
commutes up to homotopy where T is the map that exchanges factors. Let L be a space and let be a fibration over L classified by a mapf L BF (the classifying space of stable spherical fibrations). We can form the Thom spectrum T(f) of f as a suspension spectrum by letting (T(f)) be the Thorn complex of L n--YBFn where L is the n-skeleton of L. This makes T(f)-{(T(f))n) into a suspension spectrum. Spectra which arise in this fashion have a unit which is the inclusion of the fiber on the Thorn… CONTINUE READING
