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

Abstract

We compute the homotopy groups of the $\eta$-periodic motivic sphere spectrum over a field $\mathsf{k}$ 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 ${\alpha }_{1}$-periodic slice spectral sequence over $ℚ$ determines the ${\alpha }_{1}$-periodic slice spectral sequence over all extensions  $\mathsf{k}∕ℚ$. This leads to a speculation on the role of a “connective Witt-theoretic $J$-spectrum” in $\eta$-periodic motivic homotopy theory.
