Abstract: I will review the Batalin–Vilkovisky formalism and its cognates which present classical and quantum field theory via a flexible formalism in which spaces of fields are presented as complexes whose cohomology returns the physical content. Different but equivalent complexes may be used, which turns out to be important conceptuallly and in practice. Examples will be discussed.
