This is the webpage for the IAP/January course on chromatic homotopy theory, which will be running from January 16 -- February 2, 2018. I had originally planned to start on the 8th, but I will be in San Diego for JMM then.

The official course listing is here. The times listed there are flexible, so please email me at sanathd[at]mit[dot]edu to discuss what times work.

Topics to be covered will include: (basic computations with) the Adams(-Novikov) spectral sequence, the Ravenel conjectures, Morava K- and E-theories, and (if there's time) the construction of TMF. I will be writing lecture notes for every lecture.

**Update:** we may not be meeting at 2-3 pm as listed on the IAP website;
instead, we'll decide the meeting time based on the outcome of this Doodle poll.
**See below for meeting times!**

**Update 2:** We will be meeting **in room 2-361**, unless indicated
otherwise below.

**Update 3:** By popular demand, I wrote up some problems. See this link; some of the problems
don't have much to do with chromatic homotopy theory, but still give good
intuition.

**Lecture notes:** I have compiled notes from all the lectures into a single
document, which you can **find here**.
