In joint work with Inbar Klang and Foling Zou we calculate Real topological Hochschild homology of Z_(2). The calculation uses equivariant versions of factorization homology, Thom spectra and non abelian Poincare duality.
In this talk I’ll present Bökstedt’s classical calculation of THH(F_2) from a modern perspective, following Blumberg-Cohen-Schlichtkrull and Klang, before explaining our computation of real THH and its equivariant ingredients.
