I'm doing some research in which i'm using homology theory to solve a problem in computer science / engineering. Most of the work is on the CS part, but I know enough homology to get me around. I'm not really coming up with any new math per se. I'm not doing any hardcore proofs or anything. My question is, when I'm writing a paper, how much background should I put on homology and algebraic topology? Should I include theorems in my paper (even though I did not come up with them?). Should I prove theorems or just point them to a reference? I guess my main audience would be computer scientists (I would probably get eaten alive if I were to present to pure mathematicians; though there'll probably be a few in the audience)
