The action of Sq on the cohomology of the Steenrod algebra is induced by an endomorphism Theta of the Lambda algebra. This paper studies the behavior of Theta in order to understand the action of Sq; the main result is that Sq is injective in filtrations less than 4, and its kernel on the 4-line is computed.

The cohomology of the mod 2 Steenrod algebra
A minimal resolution of the mod 2 Steenrod algebra in the range 0 ≤ s ≤ 128, 0 ≤ t ≤ 184, together with chain maps for each cocycle in that range and for the squaring operation Sq0 in the cohomology
Cohomology operations and Frobenius maps
The endomorphism θ : Λ → Λ defined by θ(λk) = λ2k+1, where Λ is the classical Lambda algebra, and a similar endomorphism defined on a certain extension of Λ have been studied by several homotopy
The motivic lambda algebra and motivic Hopf invariant one problem
We introduce the F -motivic lambda algebra for any field F of characteristic not equal to 2. This is an explicit differential graded algebra whose homology is the E2-page of the F -motivic Adams
Modular representation on the Z/2-homology groups of the fourth power of real projective space and its application
We write BVh for the classifying space of the elementary Abelian 2-group Vh of rank h, which is homotopy equivalent to the cartesian product of h copies of RP. Its cohomology with Z/2coefficients can
We consider a non-traditional viewpoint on the Bockstein spectral sequence.
A note on the modular representation on the $\mathbb Z/2$-homology groups of the fourth power of real projective space and its application
We write $BV_h$ for the classifying space of the elementary Abelian 2-group $V_h$ of rank $h,$ which is homotopy equivalent to the cartesian product of $h$ copies of $\mathbb RP^{\infty}.$ Its

Let $A$ denote the Steenrod algebra at the prime 2 and let $k = \mathbb Z_2.$ An open problem of homotopy theory is to determine a minimal set of $A$-generators for the polynomial ring $P_q = k[x_1,


On the cohomology of the mod-2 Steenrod algebra and the non-existence of elements of Hopf invariant one
BY JOHI S. P. 6 A very handy E term of the Adams spectral sequence for the sphere spectrum is obtained in [5]. Here we shall use it to calculate the cohomology of the mod-2 Steenrod algebra Hs’t(A)
Generalized Dickson invariants
The action of the Steenrod Algebra on the Dickson invariants is studied in a certain ‘localized’ context. In this context one can define a completed version of the Steenrod Algebra which acts on the
Some quotient Hopf algebras of the dual Steenrod algebra
Fix a prime p, and let A be the polynomial part of the dual Steen- rod algebra. The Frobenius map on A induces the Steenrod operation f P 0 on cohomology, and in this paper, we investigate this
Let Trk be the algebraic transfer that maps from the coinvariants of certain GLk-representation to the cohomology of the Steenrod algebra. This transfer was defined by W. Singer as an algebraic
The complete Steenrod algebra and the generalized Dickson algebra
We prove that the mod 2 complete Steenrod algebra .A is closely related to the Dickson algebra, the invariant algebra of GL(k,Zj2). More pre- cisely, .A is dual to D~, the generalized Dickson algebra
