Structured ring spectra and displays

Geometry & Topology 14 (2010) 1111–1127
Abstract

We combine Lurie’s generalization of the Hopkins–Miller theorem with work of Zink–Lau on displays to give a functorial construction of even-periodic E ring spectra E, concentrated in chromatic layers 2 and above, associated to certain n × n invertible matrices with coefficients in the Witt ring of π0(E). This is applied to examples related to Lubin–Tate and Johnson–Wilson spectra. We also give a Hopf algebroid presentation of the moduli of p–divisible groups of height greater than or equal to 2.
