Suppose we are given a thick subcategory of the compact objects in the homotopy category of modules over a ring spectrum $R$. Are there conditions we can place on $R$, or on the category (compact) ...
Is the stable homotopy category idempotent complete? I have not been able to prove it, and the proof for abelian groups seems to strongly rely on looking at elements. Thanks, Jon
The title pretty much sums it up - but let me give a little bit of background first. In the p-local stable homotopy category (basically one localizes away the torsion spectra which are not p-torsion) ...
