Abstract

Well-known techniques from homological algebra and algebraic topology allow one to construct a cohomology theory for groups on which the action of a fixed group is given. After a brief discussion on the modules to be considered as coefficients, the first section of this paper is devoted to providing some definitions for this cohomology theory and then to proving that they are all equivalent. The second section is mainly dedicated to summarizing certain properties of this equivariant group cohomology and to showing several relationships with the ordinary group cohomology theory.
