Differential complex associated to closed differential forms of nonconstant rank

(Lobachevskii Journal of Mathematics, Volume XXIII)

In the present paper we construct a complex of sheaves associated to a closed differential form ω. We study this complex in case ω is a) a closed 1-form vanishing at an embedded submanifold, b) a symplectic structure with Martinet singularities. In particular, we prove that, under additional conditions on ω, this complex gives a fine resolution for the sheaf of infinitesimal automorphisms of ω.
