Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

On the Cooperations Algebra for the Second Brown-Peterson Spectrum at the Prime 2
by Culver, Dominic Leon, Ph.D., University of Notre Dame, 2017, 73; 13836442
Abstract (Summary)

In this thesis, we calculate the cooperations algebra for the second truncated Brown-Peterson spectrum, BP⟨2⟩, at the prime 2. We accomplish this through the Adams spectral sequence

ExtA*(F2, H*(BP⟨2⟩

BP⟨2⟩; F2)) ⇒ BP⟨2⟩* BP⟨2⟩ ⊗ Z2

We begin by introducing a filtration and a splitting of the mod 2 homology of BP⟨2⟩. From this splitting we will derive a splitting on the Ext-groups of BP⟨2⟩

BP⟨2⟩ into a &ugr;2-torsion component, which is concentrated in Adams filtration 0, and a &ugr;2-torsion free component. We then show that this algebraic splitting lifts to a splitting of the spectrum BP⟨2⟩


After establishing our general structural results, we turn to developing an inductive procedure for determining a basis for the &ugr;0-inverted Ext groups of BP⟨2⟩

BP⟨2⟩,and from this determine a F2[&ugr;0]-basis for ExtE(2)*(F2, H*(BP⟨2⟩; F2))= &ugr;0-tors.
