Gel’fand-Fuks cohomology is the cohomology of continuous alternating chains on the topological algebra of smooth vector fields on smooth manifold, where the topology on the algebra is given by uniform convergence of all (higher) partial derivative on compacts (sometimes called C C^\infty-topology on that algebra).
