Single cohomology classes in your area - this last weird trick will shock you!

Ronno Das
University of Chicago.


You thought cohomology was something limited to topology or algebra? Or maybe you think it's just some fancy math word? Meet these epic cocyles that are going to prove you wrong. This talk will have REAL WORLD appearances of cohomology from elementary-school arithmetic to electrical engineering to international economics, and you won't believe what comes next. Even the example about the class (NFSW) on a Klein bottle will blow your mind. N.B. No actual minds were blown in the making of this talk. Proof of your wrongness only available till stocks last. NFSW: Named Following Stiefel-Whitney.
