Two-cocycle arising from the Chern-Simons three-form

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A closed formula for the two-cocycle arising from the Chern-Simons three-form is derived. When this two cocycle is taken as a Lagrangian for the dynamics of two group elements in one [time] dimension, the Euler-Lagrange equation is identified for a general Lie group and in particular for SU (2).
