Title: Local cohomology of the Steenrod algebra, and homology of homotopy limits
Abstract: The homology of infinite products or inverse limits of spectra
is a notoriously difficult problem. A spectral sequence for this was invented by Sadofsky (unpublished) and abstract characterizations have been given, but these do not allow for effective calculations. I will show that local cohomology can be used to give a calculable description of the spectral sequence constructed by Sadofsky and give some applications.
