In algebraic geometry, the Atiyah–Bott formula says[1] the cohomology ring

$$\operatorname{H}^*(\operatorname{Bun}_G(X), \mathbb{Q}_l)$$

of the moduli stack of principal bundles is a free graded-commutative algebra on certain homogeneous generators. Atiyah and Bott's original work concerned integral cohomology ring of BunG(X).

Borel's theorem, which says the cohomology ring of a classifying stack is a polynomial ring.
