Abstract: Let $ {D_k}$ denote the Dickson algebra in $ k$ variables over the field of two elements. We study the problem of determining a minimal set of generators for $ {D_k}$ as a module over the Steenrod algebra $ \mathcal{A}$. This is easy for $ k = 1$ and $ 2$. In this paper we answer this question for $ k = 3$ and $ 4$ and give techniques which may help solve the problem for general $ k$.
