Differential forms originally show up when integrating or differentiating on manifolds. However, the concept also makes perfect sense on algebraic varieties because the derivative of a polynomial is a polynomial. The object has very many important uses, e.g., as a source of invariants needed in order to classify varieties. This approach was very successful for smooth varieties, but the singular case is less well-understood. We explain how the use of the h-topology (introduced by Suslin and Voevodsky in order to study motives) gives a very good object also in the singular case, at least in characteristic zero. The approach unifies other ad-hoc notions and simplies many proofs. We also explain the necessary modifications in positive characteristic and the new problems that show up.
