Effective actions, relative cohomology and Chern Simons formsNov 10 1997Feb 19 1998The explicit expression of all the WZW effective actions for a simple group G broken down to a subgroup H is established in a simple and direct way, and the formal similarity of these actions to the Chern-Simons forms is explained. Applications are also ... More

A Factorization of the Conway PolynomialNov 08 1997A string link S can be closed in a canonical way to produce an ordinary closed link L. We also consider a twisted closing which produces a knot K. We give a formula for the Conway polynomial of L as a product of the Conway polynomial of K times a power ... More
