Stable Homotopy theory

Idea

SpectrumSpectrum is the stable (infinity,1)-category of spectra. It is also denoted SpSp, or sometimes SpecSpec although that can be confusing.

It is the free stable locally presentable (infinity,1)-category on one compact generator, namely the sphere spectrum.

SpSp is the stable (infinity,1)-category of quasicoherent infinity-stacks on Spec(S).
