In the notation of the cited article, is S[BU(1)] equivalent to the connective K-theory spectrum ku?
What about S[BU] before localization? Is it equivalent to MU or some well-known spectrum?

Also, is there an analog for real K-theory?
Something along the lines of ko=S[W] for some W (a naive guess would be W=BZ/2)
and KO=ko[β^{−1}], where β is the Bott element for real K-theory (in particular, it has degree 8).

Another question along the same lines: can we get other Thom spectra MG by localizing S[BG]?

Also, it seems like the notation for the periodic complex cobordism spectrum is MP, whereas MU is used for the connective complex cobordism spectrum. I tried to adjust the article accordingly, but failed miserably (the Instiki engine claims “You must have Javascript on, and cookies enabled, to submit this form.”, even though I have both of them enabled).

The only other variant that I have seen is for periodic algebraic cobordism and algebraic K-theory, in Gepner-Snaith 08.

Concerning notation for periodic $MU$: how about $PMU$? I have changed it to that in the entry.

In

• Craig Westerland, A higher chromatic analogue of the image of J (arXiv:1210.2472)

is a tower of Snaith theorems for Morava $E$-theories. Have added a pointer to this to the entry.

I have added at bit more of a remark along these lines:

Snaith-like theorem for Morava E-theories

also added a brief pointer along these lines to Morava E-theory itself.

I have expanded the section Snaith theorem – For complex topological K-theory by adding a fair amount of the basic details that go into the construction of the ring spectrum homomorphism

$\Sigma^\infty(B U(1)_+)[\beta^{-1}] \longrightarrow KU$

itself.
