The Adams spectral sequence for topological modular forms, III

I will discuss the algebra structure of the E_2-term of the mod 2 Adams spectral sequence for tmf, given by the cohomology Ext_{A(2)}(F_2, F_2) of A(2).  We (Bruner & Rognes) use Groebner bases to verify the presentation given by Iwai and Shimada, with 13 generators and 54 relations. Thereafter I will discuss the relationship between differentials and Steenrod operations in the Adams spectral sequence for E_\infty ring spectra.
