### A Seminar on a Survey of Elliptic Cohomology

#### Posted by Urs Schreiber

My position in Hamburg is about to terminate, currently I am based at the MPI Bonn and about to start a postdoc position in Ieke Moerdijk’s group in Utrecht.

In Bonn we are preparing for a program by Stephan Stolz and Peter Teichner on, you know, QFT, cohomology and such things. There are lots of students of them around and they are starting to run a

This is supposed to essentially go through, guess what, Jacob Lurie’s notes. On that occasion I started a corresponding $n$Lab entry

So far this contains just a table of contents, a summary of one of the main ideas and a few links, as far as existent. I am planning to expand this entry as we go along in the Seminar, and hopefully others will join in, too.

## cohomology theories

Here are the notes for today’s session:

A Survey of Elliptic Cohomology - cohomology theories.

This is a bit rough at the moment, handle with care.

Next time some of the things roughly indicated there will be discussed in more detail.

Go latest changes to see which parts of this is turning into separate entries.

(Help is appreciated. I don’t really have the time to wiki-fy all this nicely. But should be a start.)
