Dualizing spheres for p-adic Lie groups, with applications to chromatic homotopy theory
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
p-adic Lie group
I will describe a Linearization Conjecture that identifies the spectral dualizing module of a p-adic Lie group in terms of a representation sphere built from the Lie algebra. We can prove this when the action is restricted to certain small finite subgroups. These results are enough to determine Spanier-Whitehead duals of some chromatically interesting spectra. This is joint work in progress with Beaudry, Goerss, and Hopkins.
