Title:  A(2)-modules and their Cohomology

Abstract: Modules over subalgebras of the Steenrod algebra (such as A(2)) exhibit periodicities and localizations which illuminate their  module structure and simplify the calculation of their cohomology.   This has topological correlates:  for example,

 - A(2)-modules are related to topological modular forms,

- A(1)-modules are related to  <---> real K-theory, and

- A(0)-modules to integral cohomology.

We will discuss these and related theories and the manner in which these periodicities appear as the complexity of the subalgebra increases.
