Summary: The Lie algebra of pseudodifferential symbols (\(\Psi\) \({\mathcal D}{\mathcal S})\) on the circle is a natural generalization of the algebra of differential operators (\({\mathcal D}{\mathcal O})\) on the circle, which, in turn, is a generalization of the Lie algebra of vector fields. In this note it is shown that the algebra of \(\Psi\) \({\mathcal D}{\mathcal S}\) possesses a nontrivial central extension; moreover, the restriction of the cocycle constructed here to the algebra \({\mathcal D}{\mathcal O}\) gives the cocycle found in A. O. Radul’s work [Pis’ma Zh. Eksp. Teor. Fiz. 50, 341- 343 (1989)], while its restriction to the algebra of vector fields gives the Gel’fand-Fuks cocycle.
