### what's the cohomological dimension of a Stein space?

I want to know the "cohomological dimension" of a Stein manifold.
I know that:
for $X$ differential manifold and for every sheaf $F$ of abelian
groups, I have $H_c^j(X,F)=H^j(X,F)=0$ for ...

### What is the intuition for $\mathbb{Q}^{ab}$ having cohomological dimension $1$?

I frequently talk to people who think of finite fields as arithmetic analogs of punctured discs. This makes some sense: the absolute Galois group of a finite field is the profinite completion of ...

### Continued fractions and projective resolutions

Hello,
This question might be vague and not thought-through enough.
If we have a real positive number $x$, we can start to write it as a continued fraction:
$x = a_0 + \frac{1}{x_1} , \ldots , ...

### cohomological dimension for coarser/finer topologies

Given a sheaf $\mathcal{F}$ with respect to some Grothendieck topology, is the cohomological dimension for this sheaf less than or equal to the cohomological dimension of a finer topology?
Example: ...

### Do the homological dimension and cohomological dimension for a group agree?

Or equivalently, if $G$ is a group, do the projective and injective dimension of $Z$ (viewed as a $ZG$-module) agree?
Thanks!
