Abstract Let A (2) be the mod-2 Steenrod algebra, and let P s = F 2 [x 1 , …, x s ] be the mod-2 cohomology of the s-fold product of R P x with itself, with its usual structure as an A (2)-module. A polynomial P e P s is said to be hit if it is in the image of the action A (2) bo P s → P s , wher A (2) is the augmentation ideal of A (2). In this paper we state two equivalent forms of a conjecture that a certain family of monomials is hit, and prove the conjecture in a special case. In the… CONTINUE READING
