Abstract: In this paper the concept of join of two permutation representations is defined and the cohomology of this join is computed and shown to have trivial cup-products. This computation is then used to compute the cohomology groups of the -Sylow subgroup of a symmetric group of order acting on the set of elements, and it is shown that the ring structure on these groups is not finitely generated, although it is transitive.
