Abstract
"In 1986, Landweber, Ravenel, and Stong introduced a new family of generalized cohomology theories. As these theories are in a sense defined by elliptic curves, they were dubbed elliptic cohomology theories. In this thesis; we survey the mathematics behind the construction of elliptic cohomology. Topics treated include the theory of universal formal group laws and the Lazard ring, the formal group law of an elliptic curve, the group law (up-to-homotopy) on CPinfinity, oriented and complex cobordism theories, the universal elliptic genus, and Landweber's exact functor theorem."--
