arXiv:0910.5130 Topological modular forms (aftern Hopkins, Miller, and Lurie) from arXiv Front: math.AT by Paul G. Goerss This is the companion article to the Bourbaki talk of the same name given in March 2009. The main theme of the talk and the article is to explain the interplay between homotopy theory and algebraic geometry through the HopkinsMillerLurie theorem on topological modular forms, from which we learn that the DeligneMumford moduli stack for elliptic curves is canonically realized as an object in derived algebraic geometry.
Some notes by Behrens on the construction

arXiv:1103.4187 Topological modular forms and conformal nets from arXiv Front: math.AT by Christopher L. Douglas, AndrĂ© G. Henriques 1 person liked this We describe the role conformal nets, a mathematical model for conformal field theory, could play in a geometric definition of the generalized cohomology theory TMF of topological modular forms. Inspired by work of Segal and StolzTeichner, we speculate that bundles of boundary conditions for the net of free fermions will be the basic underlying objects representing TMFcohomology classes. String structures, which are the fundamental orientations for TMFcohomology, can be encoded by defects between free fermions, and we construct the bundle of fermionic boundary conditions for the TMFEuler class of a string vector bundle. We conjecture that the free fermion net exhibits an algebraic periodicity corresponding to the 576fold cohomological periodicity of TMF; using a homotopytheoretic invariant of invertible conformal nets, we establish a lower bound of 24 on this periodicity of the free fermions.
arXiv:1101.3897 Topological modular forms of level 3 and $E\infty$structures on truncated BrownPeterson spectra from arXiv Front: math.AT by Tyler Lawson, Niko Naumann A generalized truncated BrownPeterson spectrum of height $2$ at the prime $2$ is constructed as an $E\infty$ring spectrum by methods of chromatic homotopy theory. The first portion of the paper introduces the machinery necessary to reduce this to finding an appropriate formal group law as input data. The second portion of the paper shows that the compactified moduli of elliptic curves with level $\Gamma_1(3)$structure provides this data at the prime 2.
