Smooth and Hodge filtered cohomology theories:  Smooth cohomology theories are generalized cohomology theories defined for smooth manifolds and have applications in string theory. Hodge filtered cohomology theories are the analogue for holomorphic manifolds, and have potential applications to the study of algebraic cycles. This lecture will describe these cohomology theories and some of their applications.
