Diagram spaces, diagram spectra and spectra of units

Abstract

This article compares the infinite loop spaces associated to symmetric spectra, orthogonal spectra and EKMM S–modules. Each of these categories of structured spectra has a corresponding category of structured spaces that receives the infinite loop space functor Ω. We prove that these models for spaces are Quillen equivalent and that the infinite loop space functors Ω agree. This comparison is then used to show that two different constructions of the spectrum of units gl1R of a commutative ring spectrum R agree.
