Classifying space and corresponding chain complex

The homology and cohomology groups are the same as the respective homology and cohomology groups of the configuration space of three unordered points in a countable-dimensional real projective space. For more on the topological perspective, see configuration space of unordered points of a countable-dimensional real vector space on the Topology Wiki.

Homology groups for trivial group action

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:

H^p(S_3;\mathbb{Z}) = \left \lbrace \begin{array}{rl} \mathbb{Z}, & \qquad p = 0 \\ \mathbb{Z}/2\mathbb{Z}, & \qquad p \equiv 2 \pmod 4 \\ \mathbb{Z}/6\mathbb{Z}, & \qquad p \ne 0, p \equiv 0 \pmod 4\\ 0, & \qquad p \ \operatorname{odd} \\\end{array}\right.

Over an abelian group

The cohomology groups with coefficients in an abelian group M are as follows:

H^p(S_3;M) = \left \lbrace \begin{array}{rl} M, & \qquad p = 0 \\ \operatorname{Ann}_M(2), & \qquad p \equiv 1 \pmod 4 \\ M/2M & \qquad p \equiv 2 \pmod 4 \\ \operatorname{Ann}_M(6), & \qquad p \equiv 3 \pmod 4\\ M/6M, & \qquad p > 0, p \equiv 0 \pmod 4 \\\end{array}\right.

Here \operatorname{Ann}_M(2) denotes the 2-torsion subgroup of M and \operatorname{Ann}_M(6) denotes the 6-torsion subgroup of M.
