cohomology with constant coefficients / with a local system of coefficients
differential cohomology
A differential form $\omega \in \Omega^n(X)$ on a Riemannian manifold $(X,g)$ is called a harmonic form if it is in the kernel of the Laplace operator $\Delta_g$ of $X$ in that $\Delta \omega = (d + d^\dagger)^2 \omega = 0$.
On a compact Kähler manifold the Hodge isomorphism (see there) identifies harmonic differential forms with Dolbeault cohomology classes.
