On Chern-Simons invariants of geometric 3-manifolds. (English) Zbl 1117.57008
The author studies the Chern-Simons invariant $$I(W(\alpha, \beta))$$ of a Whitehead link cone-manifold $$W(\alpha, \beta)$$ with cone angles $$\alpha$$ and $$\beta$$ along the link components. In particular, he obtains an analog of the Schläfli differential formula for torsion and finds an explicit integrand formula for the generalized Chern-Simons function.
