We determine all 2and 3-cocycles for Laver tables, an infinite sequence of finite structures obeying the left-selfdistributivity law; in particular, we describe simple explicit bases. This provides a number of new positive braid invariants and paves the way for further potential topological applications. An important tool for constructing a combinatorially meaningful basis of 2-cocycles is the right-divisibility relation on Laver tables, which turns out to be a partial ordering.
