    Using methods of geometry and cohomology developed recently, we study the Monge-Ampère equation, arising as the first nontrivial equation in the associativity equations, or WDVV equations. We describe Hamiltonian and symplectic structures as well as recursion operators for this equation in its orginal form, thus treating the independent variables on an equal footing. Besides this we present nonlocal symmetries and generating functions (cosymmetries).
