nLab cohomological induction




Cohomological induction is a derived functor version of induction functors in representation theory. As the elements in induced representations correspond to sections of certain equivariant bundles or sheaves, similarly the cohomological induction functors could be interpreted as higher cohomologies of certain equivariant sheaves.

In specific contexts, like real Lie groups, there are specifical versions like Zuckerman induction functors?; they are defined algebraically.
