Second cohomology group for trivial group action of V4 on E8

This article gives information about the second cohomology group for trivial group action (i.e., the second cohomology group with trivial action) of the group Klein four-group on elementary abelian group:E8. The elements of this classify the group extensions with elementary abelian group:E8 in the center and Klein four-group the corresponding quotient group. Specifically, these are precisely the central extensions with the given base group and acting group.
The value of this cohomology group is elementary abelian group:E512.

Description of the group

This is the second cohomology group for trivial group action where the acting group is Klein four-group and the group being acted upon is elementary abelian group:E8. In other words, it is the group:

\! H^2(G,A)

where G \cong V_4 \cong \mathbb{Z}_2 \times \mathbb{Z}_2 and A \cong E_8 \cong \mathbb{Z}_2 \times \mathbb{Z}_2 \times \mathbb{Z}_2.

The group is isomorphic to elementary abelian group:E512, i.e., it is an elementary abelian group of order 2^9 = 512.
