On some cohomological properties of the Lie algebra of Euclidean motions. (English) Zbl 1212.70005
Summary: The external derivative \(d\) on differential manifolds inspires graded operators on complexes of spaces \(\Lambda ^rg^\ast \), \(\Lambda ^rg^\ast \otimes g\), \(\Lambda ^rg^\ast \otimes g^\ast \) stated by \(g^\ast \) dual to a Lie algebra \(g\). Cohomological properties of these operators are studied in the case of the Lie algebra \(g=se( 3 )\) of the Lie group of Euclidean motions.
