The de Rham complex on a manifold M with a foliation \({\mathcal F}\) becomes a filtered complex when one says that a k-form \(\omega\) on M has filtration \(\geq a\) if \(\omega (v_ 1,...,v_ k)=0\) whenever \(k-a+1\) vectors among \(v_ i's\) are tangent to \({\mathcal F}\). The author computes the spectral sequence of this filtered complex for Lie foliations and obtains some consequences.
