Homology groups for trivial group action

FACTS TO CHECK AGAINST (homology group for trivial group action):
First homology group: first homology group for trivial group action equals tensor product with abelianization
Second homology group: formula for second homology group for trivial group action in terms of Schur multiplier and abelianization|Hopf's formula for Schur multiplier
General: universal coefficients theorem for group homology|homology group for trivial group action commutes with direct product in second coordinate|Kunneth formula for group homology

Over the integers

The homology groups with coefficients in the ring of integers are as follows:

Failed to parse (syntax error): \! H_p(D_8;\mathbb{Z}) = \left\lbrace \begin{array}{rl} \mathbb{Z}, & \qquad p = 0 \\ \mathbb{Z}/2\mathbb{Z}, & \qquad p \equiv 1 \pmod 4 \\ \mathbb{Z}/8\mathbb{Z}, & \qquad p \equiv 3 \pmod 4 \\ 0, & \qquad p \ne 0, p \ \operatorname{even}\end{array}\right

As a sequence (Starting p = 0), the first few homology groups are:

p 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
H^p(D_8;\mathbb{Z}) \mathbb{Z} \mathbb{Z}/2\mathbb{Z} 0 \mathbb{Z}/8\mathbb{Z} 0 \mathbb{Z}/2\mathbb{Z} 0 \mathbb{Z}/8\mathbb{Z} 0

Cohomology groups for trivial group action

FACTS TO CHECK AGAINST (cohomology group for trivial group action):
First cohomology group: first cohomology group for trivial group action is naturally isomorphic to group of homomorphisms
Second cohomology group: formula for second cohomology group for trivial group action in terms of Schur multiplier and abelianization
In general: dual universal coefficients theorem for group cohomology relating cohomology with arbitrary coefficientsto homology with coefficients in the integers. |Cohomology group for trivial group action commutes with direct product in second coordinate | Kunneth formula for group cohomology

Over the integers

The cohomology groups with coefficients in the ring of integers are as follows:
