"  d^3=0 homology "
  Zhengyao Wu  


I was reading Michel DUBOIS-VIOLETTE's paper on q-differential calculus. He concerned the generalized homologies associated with nilpotent endomorphisms d such that d^N=0 for N>=2. In this talk I will present his results on the corresponding homotopy invariance and the long exact sequences with a beautiful braided diagram.

People with some basic understanding on modules over a commutative ring and homology theory of chain complexes will be able to follow this talk.
