Paul Dedecker

Paul Dedecker was a Belgian mathematician, one of the pioneers of the subject of nonabelian cohomology.

Working also in general category theory. He was also doing, variational calculus and its relations to homological algebra, exterior calculus? on manifolds and mathematical physics.

His papers related to nonabelian cohomology (see also there) include
