A Quick Note on a Geometric Definition of $v_n$

This post assumes knowledge of the definition of the oriented cobordism ring, as well as the equivalence $\pi_*MU \simeq MU^*(pt) =: MU^*$, and familiarity with the Landweber exact-functor theorem

A quick post on a nice thing. I was reading Quillen and stumbled across what seems to be the first nod toward the importance of the coefficients $p, v_1, v_2, … \in MU^*$.  Continue reading A Quick Note on a Geometric Definition of $v_n$
