We outline several ways to define cohomology groups naturally associated to Lie groups. Each of them has a different motivation, along with its merits and drawbacks. We then discuss a method for proving that (almost) all of the definitions are in fact isomorphic. A particular emphases will be on the string class of a compact and simple Lie group.
