### Abstract

In homological algebra, one is often interested in simplicial abelian groups and in chain complexes. At first sight these objects present some obvious similarities, but also some serious differences. Dold-Puppe theorem proves that there is a strong connection between them. In this talk we briefly present the two kind of objects involved, and then discuss how to go from one to the other, and if time permits ideas for the proof of the correspondence.
