A space X can be described by its Postnikov tower, whose stages have only the homotopy groups of X in a range. Equivariantly, there is an analogue of the Postnikov filtration called the slice filtration. After reviewing some previously known examples, I will describe the slice filtration for twisted Eilenberg-Mac Lane spectra when the group of equivariance is K_4, the Klein four group. This is joint work with C. Yarnall.
