"... The work to be presented in this paper has been inspired by several of Professor Graeme Segal’s papers. Our search for a geometrically defined elliptic cohomology theory with associated elliptic objects obviously stems from his Bourbaki seminar [Se88].

The sigma orientation is an H∞ map
 American Journal of Mathematics
"... Abstract. In [AHS01] the authors constructed a natural map, called the sigma orientation, from the Thom spectrum MU〈6 〉 to any elliptic spectrum in the sense of [Hop95]. MU〈6 〉 is an H ∞ ring spectrum, and in this paper we show that if (E, C, t) is the elliptic spectrum associated to the universal d ..."

Abstract. In [AHS01] the authors constructed a natural map, called the sigma orientation, from the Thom spectrum MU〈6 〉 to any elliptic spectrum in the sense of [Hop95]. MU〈6 〉 is an H ∞ ring spectrum, and in this paper we show that if (E, C, t) is the elliptic spectrum associated to the universal deformation of a supersingular elliptic curve over a perfect field of characteristic p> 0, then the sigma orientation is a map of H ∞ ring spectra.

where E is a suitable complete periodic complex oriented theory and G is a finite group: we describe its variety in terms of the formal group associated to E, and the category of abelian psubgroups of G. Our results considerably extend those of HopkinsKuhnRavenel [16], and this enables us to obtain information about the associated homology of BG. For example if E is the complete 2periodic version of the JohnsonWilson theory E(n) the irreducible components of the variety of the quotient E (BG)=I k by the invariant prime ideal I k = (p; v 1; : : : ; v k\Gamma1) correspond to conjugacy classes of abelian psubgroups of rank n \Gamma k. Furthermore, if we invert v k the decomposition of the variety into irreducible pieces corresponding to minimal primes becomes a decomposition
