We study Chevalley-Eilenberg cohomology of physically relevant Lie superalgebras related to supersymmetric theories, providing explicit expressions for their cocycles in terms of their Maurer-Cartan forms. We then include integral forms in the picture by defining a notion of integral forms related to a Lie superalgebra. We develop a suitable generalization of Chevalley-Eilenberg cohomology extended to integral forms and we prove that it is isomorphic to the ordinary Chevalley-Eilenberg… Expand


Mixed cohomology of Lie superalgebras
We investigate a new cohomology of Lie superalgebras, which may be compared to a de Rham cohomology of Lie supergroups involving both differential and integral forms. It is defined by a BRST complexExpand
Čech and de Rham cohomology of integral forms
Abstract We present a study on the integral forms and their Cech and de Rham cohomology. We analyze the problem from a general perspective of sheaf theory and we explore examples in superprojectiveExpand
Pictures from super Chern-Simons theory
We study super-Chern-Simons theory on a generic supermanifold. After a self-contained review of integration on supermanifolds, the complexes of forms (superforms, pseudoforms and integral forms) andExpand
Supergravity actions with integral forms
Abstract Integral forms provide a natural and powerful tool for the construction of supergravity actions. They are generalizations of usual differential forms and are needed for a consistent theoryExpand
Cohomology of Lie superalgebras and their generalizations
The cohomology groups of Lie superalgebras and, more generally, of e Lie algebras, are introduced and investigated. The main emphasis is on the case where the module of coefficients is nontrivial.Expand
Super Chern-Simons Theory: BV-formalism and A∞-algebras
This is a companion paper of a long work appeared in [1] discussing the super-Chern-Simons theory on supermanifolds. Here, it is emphasized that the BV formalism is naturally formulated usingExpand
Invariant Operators on Supermanifolds and Standard Models
Here we continue to list the differential operators invariant with respect to the 15 exceptional simple Lie superalgebras of polynomial vector fields. A part of the list (for operators acting onExpand
The Geometry of Supermanifolds and New Supersymmetric Actions
Abstract This is the first of two papers in which we construct the Hodge dual for supermanifolds by means of the Grassmannian Fourier transform of superforms. In this paper we introduce theExpand
Superalgebra cohomology, the geometry of extended superspaces and superbranes
We present here a cohomological analysis of the new spacetime superalgebras that arise in the context of superbrane theory. They lead to enlarged superspaces that allow us to write D-brane actions inExpand
Superstring Field Theory, Superforms and Supergeometry
Inspired by superstring field theory, we study differential, integral, and inverse forms and their mutual relations on a supermanifold from a sheaf-theoretical point of view. In particular, theExpand
