Sorry, no etymologies found.
Besides this, Heidegger includes all sciences into a homogenic and homological group, the totality of science, which seems to be, not only a coarse judgment, but also simply a totally blind and incompetent misjudgment.
My only point was that, no matter what your version of quantum BRST, you are using homological techniques to isolate an invariant piece of some non-trivial representation, and understanding how this works out requires working with non-trivial representations.
These books allowed new generations of mathematicians to learn algebraic topology and homological algebra directly in the categorical language, and to master the method of diagrams.
One could therefore immediately see how the methods of, e.g., homological algebra could be applied to, for instance, algebraic geometry.
Indeed, a zoölogist, accustomed to trace a like structure under variously modified animal forms, cannot but have his homological studies recalled to his mind by the coincidence between certain physical features in the northern and southern parts of the
Its ossification from a separate centre in mammals has therefore a homological significance.
Owen pointed out that it was necessary to distinguish between centres of ossification which were teleological in import and such as were purely indicative of homological relationships.
Like Darwin, Haeckel and most evolutionists, he interpreted the homological resemblances of animals as being due to heredity, their differences as due to adaptation,  but he did not adopt Haeckel's crude and shallow definition of these terms.
They laid great store by homological resemblances, and dismissed analogies of structure as of little interest.
The natural system of classification is based upon a proper appreciation of the distinction between homological and analogical characters.
