Algebraic topology and algebraic geometry
Steenrod operations are natural transformations of cohomology groups of spaces being compatible with suspensions, which play an important role especially in homotopy theory, for example, the Hopf invariant one problem and Adams spectral sequence. In this course, we introduce the Steenrod operations for both singular cohomologies and motivic cohomologies, focusing on constructions and basic properties. In particular, we prove the Adem relations and give the Hopf algebra (algebroid) structure of Steenrod algebra and its dual.

Nanjun Yang got my doctor and master degree in University of Grenoble-Alpes, advised by Jean Fasel, and bachelor degree in Beihang University. Currently he is a assistant researcher in BIMSA. His research interests are motivic cohomology and Chow-Witt ring. He proposed the theory of split Milnor-Witt motives, which applies to the computation of the Chow-Witt ring of fiber bundles. The corresponding results have been published independently on journals such as Camb. J. Math and Doc. Math.
