In this thesis we compute the BP<1> cohomology of BP. This is done by contrasting the two different associated gradeds for BP*BP provided by the Adams spectral sequence and the universal coefficient spectral sequence to prove that both spectral sequences collapse to their E2 terms. The same technique is used to provide a splitting of BPABP and to prove a proposition crucial to the proof that holim k P -kABP<2> splits as a product of suspensions of BP's. The results for BP<1>*BP<2> are used to construct generalized Brown-Gitler spectra over BP<2>.
