    added the definition to higher dimensional Chern-Simons theory. Not done yet, but have to interrupt now.

    I have added discussion of why the abelian Chern-Simons action is nontrivial precisely in dimensions (4k+3)(4k+3) for kk \in \mathbb{N}.

    Then I vaguely indicated the holographically related self-dual theories for the first few values of kk

    • (k=0)(k = 0): 3d CS / 2d string

    • (k=1)(k=1): 7d CS / 6d fivebrane

    • (k=2)(k=2): 11d CS / space-filling 9-brane of type II
