    $\begingroup$ @FernandoMuro Thanks, Prof. Muro! Could you ask Professor Miguel for some references of this result together? $\endgroup$ – QSH Feb 24 '16 at 6:50

    $\begingroup$ Don't take my previous comment that literally. I was suggesting that you could ask him. $\endgroup$ – Fernando Muro Feb 24 '16 at 7:08

    $\begingroup$ I would guess it would not be arbitrary. I would guess $\mathbb{F}_2$ or $\mathbb{Z}_{(2)}$ coefficients as this is where $\mathbb{R}P^2$ is interesting. $\endgroup$ – Sean Tilson Feb 24 '16 at 11:10
