# Chromatic Complexity of the Algebraic K-theory of $y(n)$

@article{AngeliniKnoll2019ChromaticCO, title={Chromatic Complexity of the Algebraic K-theory of \$y(n)\$}, author={Gabe Angelini-Knoll and J. D. Quigley}, journal={arXiv: Algebraic Topology}, year={2019} }

The family of Thom spectra $y(n)$ interpolate between the sphere spectrum and the mod two Eilenberg-MacLane spectrum. Computations of Mahowald, Ravenel, and Shick show that the $E_1$-ring spectrum $y(n)$ has chromatic complexity $n$ for $0\le n\le\infty$. In this paper, we show that relative algebraic K-theory associated to the map $y(n)\to H\mathbb{F}_2$ has chromatic complexity at least $n + 1$, up to a conjecture about the Morava K-theory of inverse limits. This gives evidence for a variant…

We show that algebraic $K$-theory preserves $n$-connective $L_{n}^{f}$-equivalences between connective ring spectra, generalizing a result of Waldhausen for rational algebraic $K$-theory to higher…
