    Wrote also a sentence referring to this entry at Cartan’s homotopy formula.

    I have cross-linked with differential calculus and made Dmitri Tamarkin redirect to our existing entry for Tamarkin.

    There is a query from Tobias at Cartan calculus that does not seem to have been answered. I am not able to answer it, can someone else do it?

    Thanks for the alert.

    There must have been a basic misunderstanding. The text at Cartan calculus introduced the plain de Rham complex and the question asked if this should not be regarded as a dg-Lie algebra.

    I am suspecting that Tobias was thinking of other structures, also named after Cartan. So I have added now at Cartan calculus the following parenthetical remark:

    (There are of course other differential geometric structures named after Cartan, see also at equiariant de Rham cohomology the section The Cartan model.)
