Quasi-elliptic cohomology

Quasi-elliptic cohomology is closely related to Tate K-theory, which is a generalized elliptic cohomology associated to the Tate curve. Quasi-elliptic cohomology can be interpreted by orbifold loop spaces and expressed in terms of equivariant K-theories. We formulate the complete power operation of this theory. Applying this we prove that finite subgroups of the Tate curve can be classified by the Tate K-theory of symmetric groups modulo a certain transfer ideal. Moreover, we construct a G-orthogonal spectra weakly representing quasi-elliptic cohomology. Unfortunately, our construction does not arise from a global spectra; thus, we consider a new formulation of global stable homotopy theory that contains quasi-elliptic cohomology.
