The Telescope Conjecture

Liz Tatum (UIUC)

Abstract: In his 1984 paper “Localization with Respect to Certain Periodic Homotopy Theories”, Ravenel made seven major conjectures about homotopy theory. While the rest of these conjectures were quickly proven and are an important part of the framework for chromatic homotopy theory, the telescope conjecture remains open. Roughly, the telescope conjecture claims that: “finite localization and smashing localization in the stable homotopy category are the same”. In this talk, we’ll discuss localization in the stable homotopy category and various ways to state the telescope conjecture. Time permitting, we’ll briefly discuss a generalization of this conjecture to other categories. Please email vb8 at illinois dot edu for the zoom details.
