Inertie et acyclicité

The notion of inertia form that originates in the theory of elimination is strongly related with the local cohomology. An inertia lemma, that may be regarded as an effective form of the Peskine-Szpiro acyclicity lemma, makes it possible to derive explicit formulas and specific bounds for the cohomology of the classic complexes and the Chow forms.
