The Extended Bloch Group and the Cheeger–Chern–Simons Class

Sebastian Goette and Christian K Zickert

Geometry & Topology 11 (2007) 1623–1635

arXiv: 0705.0500

Abstract

We present a formula for the full Cheeger–Chern–Simons class of the tautological flat complex vector bundle of rank 2 over BSL(2, δ). This improves the formula by Dupont and Zickert [Geom. Topol. 10 (2006) 1347–1372], where the class is only computed modulo 2–torsion.
