# Title: $E_k$-pushouts and $E_{k+1}$-tensors

(Submitted on 14 Oct 2021)

Abstract: We prove a general result that relates certain pushouts of $E_k$-algebras to relative tensors over $E_{k+1}$-algebras. Specializations include a number of established results on classifying spaces, resolutions of modules, and (co)homology theories for ring spectra. The main results apply when the category in question has centralizers.

Among our applications, we show that certain quotients of the dual Steenrod algebra are realized as associative algebras over $HF_p \wedge HF_p$ by attaching single $E_1$-algebra relation, generalizing previous work at the prime $2$. We also construct a filtered $E_2$-algebra structure on the sphere spectrum, and the resulting spectral sequence for the stable homotopy groups of spheres has $E_1$-term isomorphic to a regrading of the $E_1$-term of the May spectral sequence.
