Suppose $A$ is an augmented commutative algebra over a field $k$. What is the relation between Hochschild homology $H_n(A,k)$ and Kahler differential $\Omega_{A/k}$? The same question is also asked about $H^n(A,k)$ and $\Omega_{A/k}$. Here $k$ is considered as the trivial $A$-bimodule via the augmentation.

can HKR be globalised to schemes? – Jacob Bell Mar 20 '13 at 15:14
Thanks for referring to the HKR. – Xingting Mar 25 '13 at 17:24

Xingting, I do not know the answer for your question. Nevertheless, the concepts involved in such questions are nicely developed in the following book (expressed in BibTex format):
