Counterexample showing that G-invariant de Rham cohomology different from cohomology of G-invariant sub-complex?

If $G$ is a discrete or a Lie Group acting smoothly on a manifold $M$, we can define the algebra of $G$-invariant de Rham classes, $H(M)^G$, and we can also consider the cohomology of the sub-complex ...

Limit cycles as closed geodesics(in negatively or positively curved space)

EDIT: Here is a related post which concern quadratic vector fields rather than Van der pol equation. In this linked post we see that the convexity of limit cycle play a crucial role. On ...
