### Steenrod Operations in Chow Theory, by Patrick Brosnan

An action of the Steenrod Algebra is constructed on the mod p Chow theory of
varieties over a field of characteristic different from p. This action
should agree with the action of the Steenrod algebra on motivic cohomology
used by Voevodsky to prove the Milnor conjecture \cite{milnor}. The
construction, however, uses only basic functorial properties of Edidin-Graham
equivariant intersection theory \cite{eg} and the Fulton-MacPherson refined
Gysin homomorphism \cite{fulton}. In particular, it does not use resolution
of singularities.
