Abstract. The Ruelle Sullivan map for an $R^n$-action on a compact metric space with invariant probability measure is a graded homomorphism between the integer Cech cohomology of the space and the exterior algebra of the dual of $R^n$. We investigate flows on tori to illuminate that it detects geometrical structure of the system. For actions arising from Delone sets of finite local complexity, the existence of canonical transversals and a formulation in terms of pattern equivariant functions lead to the result that the Ruelle Sullivan map is even a ring homomorphism provided the measure is ergodic.
