DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Maxim Kontsevich (IHES)\n\nAbstract: In classical mech
anics\, the variational principle implies the existence of a canonical clos
ed 2-form on the space of solutions of the Euler-Lagrange equation. I will
explain an origin of this 2-form via coarse geometry\, and relation with th
e 1st cohomology with compact support of the space-time. Then I'll introduc
e a generalization to higher critical points. The basic example is higher C
hern-Simons theory on 5-dimensional manifolds.
