We start by reviewing the notion of cyclotomic spectra and basic examples such as THH. Then we introduce the classical algebraic notion of an (integral, p-typical) Cartier module and its higher generalization to spectra (topological Cartier modules). We present examples such as Witt vectors and K-theory of endomorphisms. The main result, which is joint work with Ben Antieau, is that there is a close connection between the two notions.
