Using the Lie derivative of a vector field, we define a cohomology on spaces of pairs of differential forms (or 1-differentiable forms) in a manifold. We provide a link to the classical de Rham cohomology and to a 1-differentiable cohomology of Lichnerowicz type associated to an one-form. We discuss also the case of a complex manifold and a holomorphic vector field. Finally, an application to the harmonicity of 1-differentiable forms is studied in a particular case.
Keywords: 1-differentiable form, Lie derivative, vector field, cohomology, harmonic form.
