### Steenrod algebra at a prime power

Let $n=p^k$ be a prime power.
When $k=1$, the algebra of stable operations in mod $p$ cohomology is the Steenrod algebra $\mathcal{A}_p$. It has a nice description in terms of generators and ...

### When does an $E_\infty$ algebra come from a commutative differential graded algebra?

Suppose that $K$ is an $E_\infty$-algebra on a space $X$ (more generally, any ringed topos; also, feel free to assume that $X$ is a point). That is, $K$ is a cochain complex of sheaves on $X$, endowed ...

### kernel of the mod $2$ Bockstein on the first cohomology group

Let $M$ be a path-connected finite $CW$-complex. Suppose the first integral homology group is $H_1(M;\mathbb{Z})= \mathbb{Z}_2^{\oplus r}\oplus A$ where $r\geq 1$ and $A$ is a finite abelian group of ...

### Twisting of the power functor

Let $k$ be a field of characteristic $p$ and $D^b(k)$ be the infinity (equivalently, DG) category of perfect complexes over $k$. Let $C_p(=\mathbb{Z}/p)$ be the cyclic group on $p$ elements. For a $...

### algebraic structure of Integral Steenrod squares

It is well known that the classical Steenrod squares $Sq^a$ satisfy the Adem relations
$$Sq^aSq^b= \sum_c \binom{b-c-1}{a-2c}Sq^{a+b-c}Sq^c\;.$$
In the case where $a$ is odd, one can define an ...
