Question:  When is a homology class represented by a submanifold?

Jimmy Mixco will describe ways to transform cohomology to itself:

  1. (stable) cohomology operations
  2. Steenrod squares:  construction
  3. Steenrod squares:  properties and Ádem relations
  4. reduced p-th powers:  properties
For continuity, here is a link to the previous talk.
