Abstract

Mahowald’s conjecture arose as part of a program attempting to view chromatic phenomena in stable homotopy theory through the lens of the classical Adams spectral sequence. The conjecture predicts the existence of nonzero classes in the cohomology of the finite sub-Hopf algebras A(n)" role="presentation" style="display: inline; line-height: normal; font-size: 17.3333px; overflow-wrap: normal; white-space: nowrap; float: none; direction: ltr; max-width: none; max-height: none; min-width: 0px; min-height: 0px; border: 0px; padding: 0px; margin: 0px; color: rgb(64, 64, 64); font-family: "Times New Roman", Times, serif; position: relative;">A(n)A(n) of the mod⁡2" role="presentation" style="display: inline; line-height: normal; font-size: 17.3333px; overflow-wrap: normal; white-space: nowrap; float: none; direction: ltr; max-width: none; max-height: none; min-width: 0px; min-height: 0px; border: 0px; padding: 0px; margin: 0px; color: rgb(64, 64, 64); font-family: "Times New Roman", Times, serif; position: relative;">mod2mod⁡2 Steenrod algebra that correspond to generators in the homotopy rings of certain periodic spectra.
