Topological Hochschild homology (THH) is a homology theory for (derived) rings which has had several applications to algebraic K-theory and, more recently, to integral p-adic Hodge theory. I will introduce THH($A$) for a ring $A$ and discuss its relation to the (p-typical) Witt vectors of $A$, establishing (certain fixed points of) THH as a derived Witt vector construction. This is the beginning... More >
