## Second cohomology groups and extensions

### Schur multiplier

The Schur multiplier, defined as second cohomology group for trivial group action , and also as the second homology group , is cyclic group:Z2.

This has implications for projective representation theory of dihedral group:D8.

### Schur covering groups

The three possible Schur covering groups for dihedral group:D8 are: dihedral group:D16, semidihedral group:SD16, and generalized quaternion group:Q16. For more, see second cohomology group for trivial group action of D8 on Z2, where these correspond precisely to the stem extensions.
