In complete analogy with the classical case, we define the Chern-Simons action functional in noncommutative geometry and study its properties under gauge transformations. As usual, the latter are related to the connectedness of the group of gauge transformations. We establish this result by making use of the coupling between cyclic cohomology and K-theory and prove, using an index theorem, that this coupling is quantized in the case of the noncommutative torus. 
Absence of higher order corrections to noncommutative Chern-Simons coupling
We analyze the structure of non-commutative pure Chern-Simons theory systematically in the axial gauge. We show that there is no IR/UV mixing in this theory in this gauge. In fact, we show, using the
Topology of the gauge group in noncommutative gauge theory
I argue that the gauge group of noncommutative gauge theory consists of maps into unitary operators on Hilbert space of the form $u=1+K$ with $K$ compact. Some implications of this proposal are
A Chern-Simons action for noncommutative spaces in general with the example SU_q(2)
Witten constructed a topological quantum field theory with the Chern-Simons action as Lagrangian. We define a Chern-Simons action for 3-dimensional spectral triples. We prove gauge invariance of the
Noncommutative massive Thirring model in three-dimensional spacetime
We evaluate the noncommutative Chern-Simons action induced by fermions interacting with an Abelian gauge field in a noncommutative massive Thirring model in (2+1)-dimensional spacetime. This
We evaluate the ground state degeneracy of noncommutative Chern–Simons models on the two-torus, a quantity that is interpreted as the "topological order" of associated phases of Hall fluids. We

We consider the θ-deformed quantum 3-sphere S3 θ and study its Chern–Simons theory from a spectral point of view. We first construct a spectral triple on S3 θ as a generalization of the Dirac
Computing Noncommutative Chern-simons Theory Radiative Corrections on the Back of an Envelope
We show that the renormalized U(N) noncommutative Chern-Simons theory can be defined in perturbation theory so that there are no loop corrections to the 1PI functional of the theory in an arbitrary
Some Properties of Non-linear $\sigma$-Models in Noncommutative Geometry
We introduce non-linear $\sigma$-models in the framework of noncommutative geometry with special emphasis on models defined on the noncommutative torus. We choose as target spaces the two point space


Gravity coupled with matter and the foundation of non-commutative geometry
We first exhibit in the commutative case the simple algebraic relations between the algebra of functions on a manifold and its infinitesimal length elementds. Its unitary representations correspond
Quantum field theory and the Jones polynomial
It is shown that 2+1 dimensional quantum Yang-Mills theory, with an action consisting purely of the Chern-Simons term, is exactly soluble and gives a natural framework for understanding the Jones
The Local Index Formula in Noncommutative Geometry
In noncommutative geometry a geometric space is described from a spectral vantage point, as a tripleA, H, D consisting of a *-algebraA represented in a Hilbert spaceH together with an unbounded
Noncommutative differential geometry of matrix algebras
The noncommutative differential geometry of the algebra Mn (C) of complex n×n matrices is investigated. The role of the algebra of differential forms is played by the graded differential algebra

We propose uncertainty relations for the different coordinates of spacetime events, motivated by Heisenberg's principle and by Einstein's theory of classical gravity. A model of Quantum Spacetime is

A remark on trace properties of K-cycles
In this paper we discuss trace properties of $d^+$-summable $K$-cycles considered by A.Connes in [\rfr(Conn4)]. More precisely we give a proof of a trace theorem on the algebra $\A$ of a $K$--cycle
