Andreas HOLMSTRØM: Cohomology theories in motivic stable homotopy theory

Abstract: In topology, there is a correspondence between generalized cohomology theories (in the sense of the Eilenberg-Steenrod axioms) on one hand and spectra on the other hand, the latter being objects in the stable homotopy category SH. In algebraic geometry and motivic homotopy theory, the situation is much more complicated in several ways. Firstly, there are many stable homotopy categories, one for each scheme, and various functors between them. Secondly, there are many sets of axioms for what a cohomology theory should be (Weil cohomology, Bloch-Ogus cohomology, oriented cohomology, ...) and a huge zoo of cohomology theories. The aim of the talk will be to give an overview of all generalized cohomology theories in algebraic geometry, using the language of motivic stable homotopy theory.
