In this talk, I will explain how to relate the following three interesting topics:

  1. The Segal conjecture for the group .

  2. Hill-Hopkins-Ravenel’s solution of the Kervaire invariant problem.

  3. Lubin-Tate (Morava) E-theories at p = 2, with actions of finite subgroups of the Morava stabilizer groups.

I will show some interesting computation as consequences of the relations, and some future directions if time permits.

The talk is based on joint work with Agnes Beaudry, Mike Hill, Lennart Meier and Danny Shi.
