Equivariant homotopy theory for pro–spectra
We extend the theory of equivariant orthogonal spectra from finite groups to profinite groups, and more generally from compact Lie groups to compact Hausdorff groups. The –homotopy theory is “pieced together” from the –homotopy theories for suitable quotient groups of ; a motivation is the way continuous group cohomology of a profinite group is built out of the cohomology of its finite quotient groups. In the model category of equivariant spectra Postnikov towers are studied from a general perspective. We introduce pro––spectra and construct various model structures on them. A key property of the model structures is that pro–spectra are weakly equivalent to their Postnikov towers. We discuss two versions of a model structure with “underlying weak equivalences”. One of the versions only makes sense for pro–spectra. In the end we use the theory to study homotopy fixed points of pro––spectra.
