Jeremiah HELLER (Bonn): Endomorphisms of the equivariant motivic sphere

I will discuss joint work in progress with David Gepner, computing the ring of endomorphisms of the equivariant motivic sphere spectrum, for a finite group. The result is a combination of the endomorphism ring of the equivariant topological sphere spectrum (which equals the Burnside ring by a result of Segal) and that of the motivic sphere spectrum (which equals the Grothendieck-Witt ring of quadratic forms by a result of Morel). This computation is a corollary of a tom Dieck style splitting for certain equivariant motivic homotopy groups.
