Topological equivalences of E-infinity differential graded algebras

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 18 (2018) 1115–1146

Two DGAs are said to be topologically equivalent when the corresponding Eilenberg–Mac Lane ring spectra are weakly equivalent as ring spectra. Quasi-isomorphic DGAs are topologically equivalent, but the converse is not necessarily true. As a counterexample, Dugger and Shipley showed that there are DGAs that are nontrivially topologically equivalent, ie topologically equivalent but not quasi-isomorphic.

In this work, we define E topological equivalences and utilize the obstruction theories developed by Goerss, Hopkins and Miller to construct first examples of nontrivially E topologically equivalent E DGAs. Also, we show using these obstruction theories that for coconnective EFp–DGAs, E topological equivalences and quasi-isomorphisms agree. For EFp–DGAs with trivial first homology, we show that an E topological equivalence induces an isomorphism in homology that preserves the Dyer–Lashof operations and therefore induces an HFp–equivalence.
