Abstract

 Parametrized spectra are topological objects that represent
twisted forms of cohomology theories.  In this talk I will describe a theory
of parametrized spectra as highly structured bundle-like objects.  In
particular, we can make sense of the structure "group" of a bundle of
spectra.  This point of view leads to new examples and a good framework for
twisted equivariant cohomology theories.
