Gard Helle: Boardman's whole-plane obstruction group

A Cartan-Eilenberg system is an algebraic structure introduced as a model of the diagram obtained by taking the homology of all subquotients in a filtered chain complex. There are two exact couples and a single spectral sequence associated with such a system, and one may thus apply Boardman's theory of convergence to either exact couple. After reviewing parts of this theory, I will clarify the convergence situation in a Cartan-Eilenberg system and in particular present new work on a simpler interpretation of Boardman's whole plane obstruction group.
