The homotopy groups of the $\eta$-periodic motivic sphere spectrum

Kyle Ormsby and Oliver Röndigs

Vol. 306 (2020), No. 2, 679–697

We compute the homotopy groups of the η-periodic motivic sphere spectrum over a field k of finite cohomological dimension with characteristic not 2 and in which 1 is a sum of four squares. We also study the general characteristic 0 case and show that the α1-periodic slice spectral sequence over determines the α1-periodic slice spectral sequence over all extensions  k. This leads to a speculation on the role of a “connective Witt-theoretic J-spectrum” in η-periodic motivic homotopy theory.
