Zusammenfassung: 
Primary cohomology operations, i.e., elements of the Steen-rod algebra, are given by homotopy classes of maps between Eilenberg-MacLane spectra. Such maps (before taking homotopy classes) form the topological version of the Steenrod algebra. Composition of such maps is strictly linear in one variable and linear up to coherent homotopy in the other variable. To describe this structure, we introduce a hierarchy of higher distributivity laws, and prove that the topological Steenrod algebra satisfies all of them. We show that the higher distributivity laws are homotopy invariant in a suitable sense. As an application of 2-distributivity, we provide a new construction of a derivation of degree -2 of the mod 2 Steenrod algebra.
