@article{RCatenacci2020CohomologyOL, title={Cohomology of Lie Superalgebras: Forms, Integral Forms and Coset Superspaces.}, author={R.Catenacci and C.A.Cremonini and P.A.Grassi and S.Noja}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2020} }

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
