Cohomology Theories for Lie groups

Christoph Wockel (U Hamburg)

Wednesday 21st November, 2012 16:00-17:00 204


We outline several ways to define cohomology groups naturally associated to Lie groups. Each of them has a different motivation, along with its merits and drawbacks. We then discuss a method for proving that (almost) all of the definitions are in fact isomorphic. A particular emphases will be on the string class of a compact and simple Lie group.
