nLab highly structured spectrum



Stable Homotopy theory

Higher algebra



The term highly structured spectrum refers to models for spectra by model categories which carry more structure than sequential spectra, such as to support a symmetric monoidal smash product of spectra (see there for more background). This includes excisive functors, orthogonal spectra, symmetric spectra and S-modules. For details see Introduction to Stable homotopy theory, Part 1-2 – Structured spectra.

Similarly a highly structured ring spectrum is a monoid in this context (a model for an A-infinity algebra/E-infinity algebra).
