Extending a d-cohomology class to D-cocycle

  1. Nov 12, 2011 #1
    Hi!The details is in the attached file.

    I don't understand the sentence which is bolded,why if we extend the D-cochain to a D-cocycle,then we can get a global form which restricts to the d-cohomology class?

    Any hints?Thank you!:smile:

    Maybe I ignore to explain that [itex]\pi:E\rightarrow M[/itex] is a sphere bundle with structure group [itex]Diff (S^n)[/itex]
