Theme: Power operations in elliptic

cohomology and moduli of elliptic curves

A Morava E-theory at height 2 can be modeled by an elliptic spectrum whose formal group is the universal deformation of the formal group of a supersingular elliptic curve. By studying the moduli of elliptic curves at a supersingular point and near the cusps, we determine the algebra of power operations on such an E-theory, in terms of explicit generators and quadratic relations.
