Elliptic cohomology by C. B. Thomas Download PDF EPUB FB2

Elliptic cohomology theory is an "extraordinary" cohomology theory, in that the dimension axiom does not hold. The key to understanding these early chapters are the grasp of the notions of a 'multiplicative' cohomology theory on finite groups and a generalization of character theory on (finite) groups called the 'Mackey functor.' A multiplicative cohomology theory is one 4/5(1).

The article by Graeme Segal entitled "What is an elliptic object" is one that tries to generalize to elliptic cohomology the homotopy-theoretic notion of "representing functor" that gives a classification of vector bundles over a compact space.4/5(1).

Elliptic cohomology is an extremely beautiful theory with both geometric and arithmetic aspects.

Elliptic Cohomology is one of few books to present a systematic exposition of the geometric and arithmetic aspects of this extremely beautiful theory: a quotient-oriented cobordism localized away from the prime Elliptic cohomology book, whose coefficients coincide with a ring of modular forms.

Sujatha they outline some of the basic results in Galois cohomology which are used repeatedly in the study of the relevant Iwasawa modules.

Elliptic cohomology, invented in its original Elliptic cohomology book by Landweber, Stong and Ravenel in the late s, was introduced to clarify certain issues with elliptic genera and provide a context for (conjectural) index theory of families of differential operators on free loop spaces.

CONFORMAL FIELD THEORY AND ELLIPTIC COHOMOLOGY P. HU AND I. KRIZ 1. Introduction The purpose of the present paper is to address an old question (posed by Se-gal [37]) to find a geometric construction of elliptic cohomology.

An elliptic cohomology theory is a type of generalized (Eilenberg-Steenrod) cohomology theory associated with the datum of an elliptic curve. Even periodic multiplicative generalized (Eilenberg-Steenrod) cohomology theories A A are characterized by the formal group whose ring of functions A (ℂ P ∞) A(\mathbb{C}P^\infty) is the cohomology ring of A A evaluated on the.

Elliptic cohomology, along with many other areas of mathematics that are applied to physics, is usually not presented in a way that is makes it readily apparent what is going on behind the scenes. As a whole this book does not grant this type of understanding, but it is still valuable in presenting some of the approaches to giving a geometric 4/5(1).

A course in Elliptic Curves. This note covers the following topics: Fermat’s method of descent, Plane curves, The degree of a morphism, Riemann-Roch space, Weierstrass equations, The group law, The invariant differential, Formal groups, Elliptic curves over local fields, Kummer Theory, Mordell-Weil, Dual isogenies and the Weil pairing, Galois cohomology, Descent by.

This theory is then recast into the powerful and more general language of Galois cohomology and descent theory. An analytic section of the book includes such topics as elliptic functions, theta functions, and modular functions.

Next, the book discusses the theory of elliptic curves over finite and local fields and provides a survey of results. The group structure on an elliptic curve naturally leads to the notion of an elliptic genus.

Finally, we use the Landweber exact functor theorem to produce an elliptic cohomology theory whose formal group law is given by the universal elliptic genus.

Recently, I've been trying to understand Jacob Lurie's 2-equivariant elliptic cohomology a bit better than I had in the past. From what I can tell, the fragment of the story that only deals with elliptic-curves moduli-spaces elliptic-cohomology.

Elliptic Curves (Kea Books) Paperback – 20 Nov. In order to prove this theorem, the author takes the reader on a journey through group cohomology, starting first with the cohomology of finite groups and then with the cohomology of the infinite Galois group.

As is well known in other contexts, cohomology theories essentially measure /5(3). The whole subject was heavily influenced by Witten’s writing down of a 2d QFT that gives the elliptic genus, and more recently Stolz and Teichner and others have been investigating the relation of 2d conformal field theory to elliptic cohomology.

There’s more about this if you follow the link to Urs’s posting. There’s a beautiful survey paper about elliptic cohomology that Jacob Lurie, an AIM 5-year fellow in the math department at Harvard, has recently put on his home paper has been discussed a bit already by David Corfield and by Urs Schrieber.

I don’t have time right now to try and write up something comprehensible about those parts of the elliptic cohomology story. Quasi-elliptic cohomology is a variant of elliptic cohomology theories.

It is the orbifold K-theory of a space of constant loops. For global quotient orbifolds, it can be expressed in terms of equivariant K-theories. Thus, the constructions on it can be made in a neat way.
