Polynomials and the Steenrod Algebra
by Grant Walker, Reg Wood
Publisher: University of Manchester 2010
Number of pages: 121
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.

Browder-Novikov-Sullivan-Wall surgery theory investigates the homotopy types of manifolds, using a combination of algebra and topology. It is the aim of these notes to provide an introduction to the more algebraic aspects of the theory.

Our purpose is to establish the foundations of equivariant stable homotopy theory. We shall construct a stable homotopy category of G-spectra,and use it to study equivariant duality, equivariant transfer, the Burnside ring, and related topics.

This textbook on elementary topology contains a detailed introduction to general topology and an introduction to algebraic topology via its most classical and elementary segment centered at the notions of fundamental group and covering space.
