# References for Chern-Simons action $\int d^3 x ~\epsilon^{\mu \nu \rho} A_{\mu} \partial_{\nu} A_{\rho}$ [duplicate]

Can you recommend to me good references on this action? From basics to more advanced stuff.

• @Qmechanic this question is much more specific than the general question asking generally about topological QFT, so IMHO it is not a duplicate. Jan 16, 2014 at 11:38
• Abelian CS is usually the first TFT to learn. OP would have to be more specific for this not to be a duplicate. Jan 16, 2014 at 13:56
• Yes; in particular, it should have an explanation of why a generic reference on topological QFT is insufficient for what MathematicalPhysicist is looking for. So the question could be edited so as not to be a duplicate, but in its current form, I think it is a duplicate. Jan 17, 2014 at 2:47
