differential elliptic cohomology

Idea

Differential elliptic cohomology is the refinement of elliptic cohomology to differential cohomology.

This may be obtained from differential cobordism cohomology by tensoring the latter with a Landweber exact ring.

References

A model for a multiplicative differential refinement of complex cobordism cohomology theory, the theory represented by the Thom spectrum is in

As discussed there, this model is compatible with tensoring over Landweber exact rings and hence induces in particular a notion of differential elliptic cohomology.
