Descending Invertibility and the Brauer group of Topological Modular Forms
Connections for Women: Derived Algebraic Geometry, Birational Geometry and Moduli Spaces January 28, 2019 - January 30, 2019

I will describe how studying descent for invertible objects gives computational tools for determining invariants such as Picard or local Brauer groups. The illustrative examples will be related to K-theory and topological modular forms. This is based on work in progress with Antieau and Meier.
