Abstract: The goal of this paper is to show that if a smooth fiber bundle
has a compact Lie group as structure group, then the transfer map for the
algebraic K-theory of spaces satisfies analogs of the Mackey Double coset
formula and Feshbach's sum formula. We also prove a "cut and
paste" formula for parametrized Reidemeister torsion.

Title: The algebraic K-theory spectrum of a 2-adic local field
e-mail: mitchell@math.washington.edu
We explicitly determine the homotopy type of the 2-completed algebraic K-theory
spectrum KF, where F is an arbitrary finite extension of the 2-adic
rational numbers.

Title: The mod 2 homology of the general linear group of a 2-adic local field
e-mail: mitchell@math.washington.edu
Let F be a finite extension of the 2-adic rational numbers. We compute
the mod 2 homology of the general linear group GL(F) as a Hopf algebra over
the Steenrod algebra.

We compute the mod two homology Hopf rings of the spectra KO and KU.
The spaces in these spectra are the infinite classical groups and
their coset spaces, and their homology was first calculated in the
Cartan seminars, but the Hopf ring structure was first determined in
the second author's unpublished PhD thesis. The presentation given
here serves as an introduction to the first author's much more
intricate work on the connective spectrum bo. The Hopf ring viewpoint
turns out to be very convenient for understanding the homological
effect of various maps between classical groups and fibrations of
their connective covers.

ABSTRACT:
An associahedral set is a combinatorial object generated by Stasheff
associahedra K_n and equipped with appropriate face and degeneracy operators.
Associahedral sets are similar in many ways to simplicial or cubical sets. In
this paper we give a formal definition of an associahedral set, discuss some
naturally occurring examples and construct an explicit geometric diagonal
\Delta :C_*(K_n) --> C_*(K_n) \otimes C_*(K_n) on the cellular chains C_*(K_n).
The diagonal \Delta, which is analogous to the Alexander-Whitney diagonal on
the simplices, gives rise to a diagonal on any associahedral set and leads
immediately to an explicit diagonal on the A_\infty operad. As an application
of this, we use the diagonal \Delta to define a tensor product in the A_\infty
category.

In this paper we study E^*BV_k, where E=BP is a cohomology theory
with coefficient ring F_p[v_m,...,v_n] (if m>0) or Z_(p)[v_1,...,v_n]
(if m=0). We use ideas from the theory of multiple level structures,
developed in earlier work of the author with John Greenlees. Our
results apply when k is less than or equal to w=n+1-m. If k E^0BG is an isomorphism.

Let V_0 and V_1 be complex vector bundles over a space X. We
use the theory of divisors on formal groups to give obstructions in
generalised cohomology that vanish when V_0 and V_1 can be
embedded in a bundle U in such a way that V_0\cap V_1 has
dimension at least k everywhere. We study various algebraic
universal examples related to this question, and show that they arise
from the generalised cohomology of corresponding topological
universal examples. This extends and reinterprets earlier work on
degeneracy classes in ordinary cohomology or intersection theory.

Formal schemes and formal groups

We set up a framework for using algebraic geometry to study the
generalised cohomology rings that occur in algebraic topology. This
idea was probably first introduced by Quillen and it underlies much of
our understanding of complex oriented cohomology theories, exemplified
by the work of Morava. Most of the results have close and well-known
analogues in the algebro-geometric literature, but with different
definitions or technical assumptions that are often inconvenient for
topological applications. We merely put everything together in a
systematic and convenient way.

We give a new and simpler proof of a result of Hopkins and Gross
relating Brown-Comenetz duality to Spanier-Whitehead duality in the
K(n)-local stable homotopy category.

K(n) local duality for finite groups and groupoids

Included postscript file: st-kld.eps
We define an inner product (suitably interpreted) on the K(n)-local
spectrum LG := L_{K(n)}BG_+, where G is a finite group or groupoid.
This gives an inner product on E^*BG_+ for suitable K(n)-local ring
spectra E. We relate this to the usual inner product on the
representation ring when n=1, and to the Hopkins-Kuhn-Ravenel
generalised character theory. We show that LG is a Frobenius algebra
object in the K(n)-local stable category, and we recall the connection
between Frobenius algebras and topological quantum field theories to
help analyse this structure. In many places we find it convenient to
use groupoids rather than groups, and to assist with this we include a
detailed treatment of the homotopy theory of groupoids. We also
explain some striking formal similarities between our duality and
Atiyah-Poincare duality for manifolds.

Included postscript file: st-pmm.eps
We use the new categories of spectra and MU-modules constructed by
Elmendorf, Kriz, Mandell and May to get improved results about
multiplicative structures on spectra such as P(n) and E(n),
particularly in the case p=2.
