    am starting curvature characteristic form and Chern-Simons form.

    But still working…

    added a little bit of the \infty-Lie algebroid-description to Chern-Simons form.

    seems I created a stub for Weil homomorphism, but am running a bit out of steam…

    I added a remark on the fundamental work of Gelfand and Smirnov.

    Thanks, I hadn’t been aware of that.

    One student in Zagreb had done a diploma (under Svrtan’s guidance) on the Gelfand-Smirnov approach few years ago, but then switched to the subject of automorphic forms/representation theory so we already forgot about most of the subject. It is part of a general picture of “formal geometry”. I have the feeling that Gosha Sharygin was telling me last year some new related “combinatorial” ideas on Gel’fand-Smirnov but I may mix it up.

    added a section (with some subsections) titled In oo-Chern-Weil theory to Chern-Simons form.
