. In [Bau06], Baues computed the secondary Steenrod algebra, the algebra of all secondary cohomology operations. Together with Jibladze, they showed that this gives an algorithm that computes all
The Lieb-Schultz-Mattis Theorem: A Topological Point of View
We review the Lieb-Schultz-Mattis theorem and its variants, which are no-go theorems that state that a quantum many-body system with certain conditions cannot have a locally-unique gapped ground
Combinatorics of balanced carries
Cyclic algebras, Schur indices, norms, and Galois modules
Let p be a prime and suppose that K/F is a cyclic extension of degree p^n with group G. Let J be the F_pG-module K^*/K^{*p} of pth-power classes. In our previous paper we established precise
On adding a list of numbers (and other one-dependent determinantal processes)
Adding a column of numbers produces "carries" along the way. We show that random digits produce a pattern of carries with a neat probabilistic description: the carries form a one-dependent
Abstraction, Reasoning and Deep Learning: A Study of the "Look and Say" Sequence
This paper argues, using the example of the “Look and Say” puzzle, that although deep neural networks can exhibit high ‘competence’ when trained on large data sets, they do not show any sign on the deeper understanding of the problem, or what D. Dennett calls ‘comprehension’.
The codimension-one cohomology of SLnℤ
We prove that H ( n 2) 1 (SL n Z ; Q ) = 0, where ( n ) is the cohomological dimension of SL n Z , and similarly for GL n Z . We also prove analogous vanishing theorems for cohomology with
Carries, Group Theory, and Additive Combinatorics
Given a group and a normal subgroup, the problem of choosing coset representatives with few “carries” is studied and a gentle introduction to some results and techniques of additive combinatorics is given.
Carries, Shuffling, and an Amazing Matrix
It is shown that this Markov chain has the same transition matrix as the descent process when a deck of cards is repeatedly riffle shuffled, giving new results for the statistics of carries and shuffling.

Topics in Cohomology of Groups
The book is a mostly translated reprint of a report on cohomology of groups from the 1950s and 1960s, originally written as background for the Artin-Tate notes on class field theory, following the

Cohomology of Groups
This advanced textbook introduces students to cohomology theory. No knowledge of homological algebra is assumed beyond what is normally taught in a first course in algebraic topology.
