Idea

As with the Atiyah-Segal completion theorem for equivariant K-theory, similar results have been developed for equivariant complex cobordism cohomology theory (Löffler 74, see Greenlees-May, theorem 1.1), and more generally for MU-modules.

For instance, for certain classes of groups, GG, the cohomology ring MU(BG)MU(B G) is the completion of MU G(*)MU_G(\ast) at its augmentation ideal.
