Title: The Adams-Novikov spectral sequence for topological modular forms
Abstract: The topological modular forms spectrum tmf serves as an approximation to the sphere spectrum. The homotopy groups of tmf give a lot of information about the sphere. Of all the known methods for computing the homotopy of tmf, the easiest approach is to simultaneously carry out the Adams and Adams-Novikov spectral sequences.
