Title: C_2-equivariant stable homotopy groups and Mahowald invariants

Abstract: I will describe a piece of the Adams spectral sequence that computes C_2-equivariant stable homotopy groups.  From this data, one can recover the (previously known) Mahowald invariants of 2^k.  One can also recover Landweber's result on the image of the fixed point map from pi_{n,n} to pi_0.
