Classifying spectra of finite groups and chromatic homotopy theory
We will discuss a question about the functoriality of certain evaluation maps for classifying spectra of finite groups that arose when thinking about questions related to chromatic homotopy theory. I will describe an algebraic solution to this problem found in joint work with Reeh, Schlank. If time permits, I hope to describe a related question regarding idempotents of p-groups in the K(n)-local category.
