The Adams spectral sequence is available in any triangulated category equipped with a projective or injective class. Higher Toda brackets can also be defined in a triangulated category, as observed by B. Shipley based on J. Cohen's approach for spectra. We provide a family of definitions of higher Toda brackets, show that they are equivalent to Shipley's, and show that they are self-dual. Our main result is that the Adams differential $d_r$ in any Adams spectral sequence can be expressed as an… 
On matrix Toda brackets in Baues–Wirsching cohomology
Hardie, Kamps and Marcum have considered the matrix Toda brackets introduced by Barratt in the category of topological spaces from a 2-categorical point of view. Baues and Dreckmann have shown that a
Higher order Toda brackets
We describe two ways to define higher order Toda brackets in a pointed simplicial model category $\mathcal{D}$: one is a recursive definition using model categorical constructions, and the second
A Toda bracket convergence theorem for multiplicative spectral sequences
Moss’ theorem, which relates Massey products in the Er-page of the classical Adams spectral sequence to Toda brackets of homotopy groups, is one of the main tools for calculating Adams differentials.
The bivariant parasimplicial $\mathsf{S}_{\bullet}$-construction
Coherent strings of composable morphisms play an important role in various important constructions in abstract stable homotopy theory (for example algebraic K-theory or higher Toda brackets) and in
Truncated derived functors and spectral sequences
The $E_2$ term of the Adams spectral sequence may be identified with certain derived functors, and this also holds for a number of other spectral sequences. Our goal is to show how the higher terms
A constructive approach to higher homotopy operations
In this paper we provide an explicit general construction of higher homotopy operations in model categories, which include classical examples such as (long) Toda brackets and (iterated) Massey
Note on Toda brackets
We provide a general definition of Toda brackets in a pointed model categories, show how they serve as obstructions to rectification, and explain their relation to the classical stable operations.

A k-linear triangulated category without a model
In this paper we give an example of a triangulated category, linear over a field of characteristic zero, which does not carry a DG-enhancement. The only previous examples of triangulated categories

It is shown that, under the operation of higher Toda bracket (which will be defined in ? 2), certain classes in the stable homotopy ring of spheres w*(S) generate all of w-(S), called the Hopf classes, which are those detected by primary cohomology operations.
Ideals in triangulated categories: phantoms, ghosts and skeleta
We begin by showing that in a triangulated category, specifying a projective class is equivalent to specifying an ideal I of morphisms with certain properties and that if I has these properties, then
Homology and fibrations I Coalgebras, cotensor product and its derived functors
The s tudy of the relations between the homology structure of the base space, the total space and the fiber of a fibration offers ample opportunity for application of homological algebra. This series
On the algebraic classification of module spectra
Using methods developed by Franke in [7], we obtain algebraic classification results for modules over certain symmetric ring spectra (S ‐algebras). In particular, for any symmetric ring spectrum R
Triangulated Categories: Algebraic versus topological triangulated categories
The most commonly known triangulated categories arise from chain complexes in an abelian category by passing to chain homotopy classes or inverting quasi-isomorphisms. Such examples are called
Universal Toda brackets of ring spectra
We construct and examine the universal Toda bracket of a highly structured ring spectrum R. This invariant of R is a cohomology class in the Mac Lane cohomology of the graded ring of homotopy groups

The product on the stable homotopy ring of spheres π* s can be defined by composing, smashing or joining maps. Each of these three points of view is used in Section 2 to define Massey products on π*

In (8), we have shown how, in general, the problem of identifying the differentials in the Adams spectral sequence (see(1),(4)) is equivalent to that of calculating certain higher-order cohomology
