Chern-Simons action

  1. Oct 26, 2014 #1
    I have the Chern Simons action, and I've found the equations of motion ##\epsilon^{\mu\nu\rho}F_{\nu\rho}=0##. A problem I was looking at said show that the e.o.m. is "gauge equivalent to the trivial solution". I understand what this means. Obviously the e.o.m. is manifestly gauge invariant, and this is trivial to show, so I don't know what else to do.
