 The authors apply a theorem of J. Lurie to produce cohomology theories associated to certain Shimura varieties of type \(U(1,n1)\). These cohomology theories of topological automorphic forms (\(\mathit{TAF}\)) are related to Shimura varieties in the same way that \(\mathit{TMF}\) is related to the moduli space of elliptic curves.
