differential elliptic cohomology

*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.

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

*Landweber exact formal group laws and smooth cohomology theories*(arXiv:0711.1134)

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