Polynomials and the Steenrod Algebra
by

Publisher: University of Manchester
Number of pages: 121

Description:
This book investigates the Steenrod algebra A2 over the field of two elements F2 in a purely algebraic context by its action on the polynomial algebra P(n) in n variables over F2 and treats the hit problem of finding the irreducibles of this action as a recurrent theme throughout. The reader is expected to have a basic knowledge of algebra.

This is an expository paper on homotopy colimits and homotopy limits. These are constructions which should arguably be in the toolkit of every modern algebraic topologist. Many proofs are avoided, or perhaps just sketched.
