The K-completion of E6

This 21-page paper will appear in the Proceedings of the Isle of Skye conference, which will be published by Birkhauser.

Abstract: We compute the 2-primary v1-periodic homotopy groups of the K-completion of the exceptional Lie group E6. We conjecture that the natural map from E6 to its K-completion induces an isomorphism in v1-periodic homotopy, and discuss issues related to this conjecture.
