Aims |

The main purpose of the course consists in the presentation of the basic concepts, notions and results concerning de Rham coomology of differential forms on a differentiable manifold. From many points of view the topic of this course is a natural continuation of the material presented for this master class in the first semester. At the seminar the students will complete by individual papers some topics presented in the course. |

Content |

1. Elements of de Rham cohomology. Determinants, volumes and Hodge' operator. Differential forms. Integration of differential forms and Stokes' theorem. De Rham
cohomology spaces and first computations. The Mayer-Vietoris sequence and applications. Poincare' duality. the connection with the singular homoilogy: de Rham theorem. 2. Other theories of cohomology. Shaves and preshaves. The shaves cohomology. Some classical cohomology theories: Alexander-Spanier, singular cohomology, Cech' cohomology. The de Rham model. Multiplicity structures in cohomology. |
