A localization of the truncated Brown-Peterson spectrum. A form of Morava E-theory.
The orientation of Morava E-theory is discussed in (Sati-Kriz 04, Buhné 11). It is essentially given by the vanishing of the seventh integral Stiefel-Whitney class $W_7$.
Notice that this is in analogy to how orientation in complex K-theory is given by the vanishing third integral Stiefel-Whitney class $W_3$ (spin^c-structure).
Precisely:
Let $X$ be a connected closed manifold of dimension 10 with spin structure. This is generalized oriented in second integral Morava K-theory $\tilde K(2)$ (for $p = 2$) precisely if its seventh integral Stiefel-Whitney class vanishes, $W_7(X) = 0$.
This is (Buhné 11, prop. 8.1.13), following (Sati-Kriz 04).
Let $X$ be a connected closed manifold of dimension 10 with spin structure. This is generalized oriented in second Johnson-Wilons cohomology theory (Morava E-theory) $E(2)$ (for $p = 2$) precisely if its seventh integral Stiefel-Whitney class vanishes, $W_7(X) = 0$.
This is (Buhné 11, cor. 8.1.14), following (Sati-Kriz 04).
