Previously, we constructed operations in the mod 2 homology spectral sequence associated to a cosimplicial E-infinity-space X. The correct target for this spectral sequence is the homology of Tot X. Noting that in this setting Tot X is an E-infinity-space, we show that our operations agree with the usual Araki-Kudo operations in the target. We also prove that the multiplication in the spectral sequence agrees with the multiplication in H-*(Tot X). (C) 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
