### show that the compactly supported De Rham cohomology groups $H^{p}_{DR}(\mathbb{R^n})$ are all zero for $0\leq p<n$

I am reading John Lee's book and there is a problem on De Rham cohomology: show that the compactly supported De Rham cohomology groups $H^{p}_{DR}(\mathbb{R^n})$ are all zero for $0\leq p<n$. My ...

### Cohomology groups of real projective space

My question concerns the cohomology groups $H^k(RP^n,\mathbb{Z}_2)$. We know that $H_k(RP^n,\mathbb{Z}_2) = \mathbb{Z}_2$ if $0 \leq k \leq n$ and is trivial otherwise. I looked up the solution and it ...

### Toy sheaf cohomology computation

I asked this question a while back on MO : http://mathoverflow.net/questions/32689/how-should-a-homotopy-theorist-think-about-sheaf-cohomology One thing that really helped in learning the Serre SS ...

### Surprising applications of cohomology

The concept of cohomology is one of the most subtle and powerful in modern mathematics. While its application to topology and integrability is immediate (it was probably how cohomology was born in the ...

### Computing $H^k(\mathbb{C}P^n \times \mathbb{C}P^m, \mathcal{O}^*(\mathbb{C}P^n \times \mathbb{C}P^m))$.

I have to calculate Cech cohomology groups $H^k(\mathbb{C}P^n \times \mathbb{C}P^m, \mathcal{O}^*(\mathbb{C}P^n \times \mathbb{C}P^m))$, working in Cech cohomology, where $\mathcal{O}^*$ is the sheaf ...

### $H^k(\mathbb{C}P^2 \times \mathbb{C}P^2, \mathcal{O}^*(\mathbb{C}P^2 \times \mathbb{C}P^2))$

I'd like to try to compute Cech cohomology groups $H^k(\mathbb{C}P^2 \times \mathbb{C}P^2, \mathcal{O}^*(\mathbb{C}P^2 \times \mathbb{C}P^2))$, but I don't know how can I do it. In my notes the author ...
I am stuck at some basic fact I would like to prove. I tried proving it using $G-$orbits and cardinalities, but without success. Let $p$ be some prime number, $G$ be a finite $p-$group and $A$ a ...
Let $M$ be a closed 2-dimensional manifold (a surface). Assume that I have a more or less explicit expression for a Čech 2-cocyle $h_{ijk} \in H^2(M, G)$. I want to know the expression of $h_{ijk}$ as ...
