CIRCLE-EQUIVARIANT CLASSIFYING SPACES AND THE RATIONAL EQUIVARIANT SIGMA GENUS
 

Summary: CIRCLE-EQUIVARIANT CLASSIFYING SPACES AND THE RATIONAL
EQUIVARIANT SIGMA GENUS
MATTHEW ANDO AND J.P.C.GREENLEES
Abstract. We analyze the circle-equivariant spectrum MStringC which is the equivariant ana-
logue of the cobordism spectrum MU 6 of stably almost complex manifolds with c1 = c2 = 0.
In [Gre05], the second author showed how to construct the ring T-spectrum EC representing the
T-equivariant elliptic cohomology associated to a rational elliptic curve C. In the case that C is a
complex elliptic curve, we construct a map of ring T-spectra
MStringC EC
which is the rational equivariant analogue of the sigma orientation of [AHS01]. Our method gives
a proof of a conjecture of the first author in [And03b].
