Abstract

 The cohomology of certain p-adic Lie groups plays a central role in chromatic homotopy theory. In this talk I will discuss these groups and discuss some of their elementary group theoretical structure.  Then I will explain some recent group cohomology calculations relevant for stable homotopy theory. In particular I will highlight the result of some highly non-trivial calculation resulting in a surprising isomorphism which cries out for a conceptual explanation.
