The eta-local motivic sphere


The Hopf map eta is nilpotent in the stable homotopy groups of spheres. This is not so for the motivic Hopf map, considered as an element of the motivic stable homotopy groups of spheres. This suggests that the eta-local part of motivic stable homotopy theory is an interesting object of study. We will describe this for the base fields C and R.
