Abstract: We present a spectrum-level version of the norm map in equivariant homotopy theory based on the algebraic construction in the 1997 paper by Greenlees and May. We show that this new norm map is the same as the construction in the 2009 paper by Hill, Hopkins and Ravenel. Our comparison of the two norm maps gives a conceptual understanding of the choices inherent in the definition of the multiplicative norm map.
