Abstract/Media

I will show how to extend the algebraic notion of characteristic at least for connective spectra, obtaining a homotopically meaningful concept. I will then discuss some examples of constructions that involve Hopf invariant 1 elements, leading to some conjectures about characteristics of HZ, ku, ko,tmf (at 2).
