In a series of recent papers, Minhyong Kim defined an arithmetic analogue of topological Chern-Simons theory. In this talk, I will introduce this arithmetic Chern-Simons theory and then explain how to compute the arithmetic Chern-Simons invariant for finite, cyclic gauge groups. I will then give some recent applications of these computations.

My work in this talk is based on joint works with Tomer Schlank and Eric Ahlquist.
