I'm a PhD candidate interested in mathematics inspired by theoretical physics (QFT, strings, integrable systems, etc.).

comment Why is $W(V)\simeq D(k[X_1,\dots,X_n])$?
Updated to include a sketch of the proof. You can find the details in the lecture notes by Cannas da Silva.

comment Exactness Axiom of Homology Theory
$C_k(\cdot)$ are the chains, with boundary map $\partial: C_k(\cdot) \to C_{k-1}(\cdot)$, so that $H_k = \ker \partial_k / \mathrm{im} \partial_{k+1}$. They depend on what homology theory you are considering, but they are always there in the background somewhere. For the singular homology of a space $X$ they are formal linear combinations of maps $\Delta^k \to X$ where $\Delta^k$ is the standard $k$-simplex. For simplicial and cellular homology there are analogous definitions. Whenever you encounter any kind of homology you should think of it as the homology of some underlying chain complex.

comment Center of Clifford Algebra depending on the parity of $\dim V$?
The parity issue is discussed in detail in E. Meinrenken's Notes math.toronto.edu/mein/teaching/clif_main.pdf . See Proposition 2.6 in particular, which gives the result over $\mathbb{C}$. Another good reference is Chevalley's book.

comment Non-closed subgroups of Lie groups
Irrational flows on the torus are well-studied (and famous) examples in noncommutative geometry. So it might be worth looking at the noncommutative geometry literature to see if there is anything like what you're asking.
