# Title: Positive characteristic Poincaré Lemma

(Submitted on 17 Oct 2021)

Abstract: Let $K$ be a field of characteristic $ p>0$ and $\omega$ be an $r$-form in $ K^n$. In this case, differently of fields of characteristic zero, the Poincar\'e Lemma is not true because there are closed $ r$-forms that are not exact. We present here a definition of a $p$-closed $r$-forms and a version of the Poincar\'e Lemma that is valid for $p$-closed polynomial or rational $r$-forms on $ K^n$ and, as a consequence, the de Rham cohomology modules of $ K^n$ are not trivial.
