Elliptic Cohomology and Chromatic Chenomena \& Higher Chromatic Phenomena

8th December 2002 to 21st December 2002

Organising Committee: Haynes Miller (MIT) & Doug Ravenel (Rochester)

Supported by the European Commission, Research DG, Human Potential Programme, High-Level Scientific Conferences - HPCF-2001-00105

EuroWorkshop Theme

This EuroWorkshop will bring together the many disparate directions of research on elliptic genera and cohomology. These include: topological modular forms, obstruction theory technology, the enriched Witten genus, homotopical level structures, the Waldhausen K-theory of topological K-theory, equivariance and rigidity, twisted K-theory and the Verlinde algebra, the chiral de Rham complex, fundamental classes of algebraic varieties, orbifold genera, index theory on loop spaces, elliptic phenomena in physics, and moonshine representation theory.

The principal objective will be to make connections between these developments, and speakers will be encouraged to bridge the gaps between them.
