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.
