Cyclic homology and the Beĭlinson-Manin-Schechtman central extension

We construct central extensions of the Lie algebra of differential operators on a one-dimensional affine variety over a field of characteristic zero, generalizing the Virasoro extension. The construction is an application of recent calculations of the Hochschild and cyclic homology of algebras of differential operators.
