## Abstract:

Chains of differential graded abelian monoids are defined for bordism and cobordism theories. These chains are used to define matric Massey products and can be filtered so as to define the Adams spectral sequence. From this point of view, we prove three basic theorems which show how Massey products behave in the Adams spectral sequence.## References
