The homotopy of $\mathit{MString}$ and $\mathit{MU}\langle 6\rangle$ at large primes

Mark Hovey

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 8 (2008) 2401–2414
Abstract

We use Hopf rings to compute the homotopy rings πMO8 and πMU6 at primes  > 3. In this case, the additive structure is well-known, but the ring structure is not polynomial. Instead, these rings are quotients of polynomial rings by infinite regular sequences.
