*Abstract:*
We describe a fantasy that originated from our 2011 paper on the secondary Steenrod algebra
and which finally seems on track to make contact with reality using the Baker-Richter-Morava spectrum Mξ.

*Abstract:*
We use the Mansour-Vainshtein theory of kernel shapes
to decompose the set of 1324-avoiding permutations of length n into small pieces that are governed by some kernel shape λ.
This allows us to write down a systematic procedure for finding a lower bound for approximating the Stanley-Wilf limit of the pattern 1324. We use an implementation of this method in the OpenCL framework to compute such a bound explicitly.

*Abstract:*
We introduce a new model for the secondary Steenrod algebra
at the prime 2
which is both smaller and more accessible than the
original construction of H.-J. Baues.
We also explain how BP can be used to
define a variant of
the secondary Steenrod algebra at odd primes.

*Abstract:*
My PhD thesis. It develops an improved method for the computation of
the minimal resolution of the Steenrod algebra. The algorithm is based on some
well-known vanishing theorems for the cohomology of its sub Hopf algebras.

*Abstract:*
We show how the non-commutativity of P(n) for p=2
leads to complications in the algebra of cooperations
P(n)_{*}P(n).
