Some relations between admissible monomials for the polynomial algebra
Mothebe, Mbakiso Fix; Uys, Lafras
Let P(𝑛) = F2[𝑥1, . . . , 𝑥𝑛] be the polynomial algebra in 𝑛 variables 𝑥𝑖, of degree one, over the field F2 of two elements. The mod-2 Steenrod algebra A acts on P(𝑛) according to well known rules. A major problem in algebraic topology is of determining A+P(𝑛), the image of the action of the positively graded part of A. We are interested in the related problem of determining a basis for the quotient vector space Q(𝑛) = P(𝑛)/A+P(𝑛). Q(𝑛) has been explicitly calculated for 𝑛 = 1, 2, 3, 4 but problems remain for 𝑛 ≥ 5. Both P(𝑛) = ⨁𝑑≥0P𝑑(𝑛) and Q(𝑛) are graded, where P𝑑(𝑛) denotes the set of homogeneous polynomials of degree 𝑑. In this paper, we show that if𝑢 = 𝑥𝑚1 1 ⋅ ⋅ ⋅ 𝑥𝑚𝑛−1 𝑛−1 ∈ P𝑑 (𝑛−1) is an admissible monomial (i.e., 𝑢 meets a criterion to be in a certain basis forQ(𝑛−1)), then, for any pair of integers (𝑗, 𝜆), 1 ≤ 𝑗 ≤ 𝑛, and 𝜆 ≥ 0, the monomial ℎ𝜆𝑗 (𝑢) = 𝑥𝑚1 1 ⋅ ⋅ ⋅ 𝑥
𝑚𝑗−1 𝑗−1 𝑥2 𝜆−1 𝑗 𝑥𝑚𝑗 𝑗+1 ⋅ ⋅ ⋅ 𝑥𝑚𝑛−1 𝑛 ∈ P𝑑 +(2𝜆 −1)(𝑛) is admissible. As an application we consider a few cases when 𝑛 = 5.

A unified approach to integration theory
Robdera, Mangatiana A.
We investigate the common features and the resemblance of the central parts of the different existing integration theories to obtain a more unified approach to the notion of integral. Our approach gives a presentation of the integral that does not require the development of measure theory.

On the Riesz representation theorem and integral operators
Robdera, Mangatiana A.
We present a Riesz representation theorem in the setting of extended integration theory as introduced in [6]. The result is used to obtain boundedness theorems for integral operators in the more general setting of spaces of vector valued extended integrable functions.

Fundamental Theorem of Calculus in Topological Vector Spaces
Robdera, M. A.; Kagiso, D. N.
We extend the notions of integration and differentiation to cover the class of functions taking values in topological vector spaces. We give versions of the Lebesgue-Nikodym Theorem and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus in such a more general setting.
