\section{Introduction: Genera and Multiplicative Sequences} % (fold)
\emph{This section summarises the talk by Julian extended with more details on multiplicative sequences from \cite[Chap.~1]{hirzebruch_modularforms}.}
The story start by looking at bordism invariants.
Recall that cobordism classes of manifolds can be added by taking the disjoint union, which yields a commutative additive structure.
Taking the product yields a multiplication and together they give a graded ring.

Another interesting aspect ist, that $\tmf$ arises canonically from chromatic homotopy theory.

\section{Ellipctic Genera} % (fold)
\emph{This section contains a summary of the talk by Markus prepended with some material from \cite[Chap.~2]{hirzebruch_modularforms}.}
We already made contact with the duplication formula
\sum_{k=0}^{\infty} \varphi \enbrace*{\HP^k}y^{2k} = h(y) \qquad \text{ where } \quad h(f(x)) = \frac{f(2x)}{2 \,f(x)f'(x)}

This involves quite a lot of computations, which we will omit here -- a very brief summary is adequate nonetheless.\todo{do it!}

This seems to be mostly algebra and I'm unsure, whether it is actually relevant for my talk?

\section{Index Theory} % (fold)
\emph{This is based on my talk in the Münster topology Phd seminar 2020.
This coverage of index theory is intended to complement \cite[Chap.~5]{hirzebruch_modularforms} by providing more background on the \enquote{classical} index theory used there.
In this writeup there are more references and details given, than in the talk -- in particular the Thom isomorphism confusion has been fixed.}
We start with a quick recap an genera as discussed in \cref{sec:introduction_julian}.
Following \textcite{hirzebruch_modularforms} a genus is a ring homomorphism
