Title: The long exact sequence of a covering: three applications.

Author: I. Krasil'shchik

We construct the long exact sequence of C-cohomology associated to a covering over a differential equation E and use this sequence to solve the following problems: (1) infinitesimal description of smooth irreducible families of coverings; (2) reconstruction of nonlocal symmetries by their shadows; (3) description of action of recursion operators on (nonlocal) symmetries.
