**Polynomials and the Steenrod Algebra**

by Grant Walker, Reg Wood

**Publisher**: University of Manchester 2010**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.
