# Second cohomology group for trivial group action of V4 on direct product of Z4 and Z2

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 direct product of Z4 and Z2. The elements of this classify the group extensions with direct product of Z4 and Z2 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.

## Description of the group

We consider here the second cohomology group for trivial group action of Klein four-group on direct product of Z4 and Z2, i.e.,

The group is isomorphic to elementary abelian group:E64.

## Elements

We list here the elements, grouped by similarity under the action of the automorphism groups on both sides.

## Generalized Baer Lie rings

The examples here illustrate the cocycle halving generalization of Baer correspondence. See also second cohomology group for trivial group action is internal direct sum of symmetric and cyclicity-preserving 2-cocycle subgroups if acting group is elementary abelian 2-group and every element of order two in the base group is a square

For this particular choice of and , the symmetric cohomology classes (corresponding to abelian group extensions) and the cyclicity-preserving subgroup generate the whole group, i.e., we have:

as an internal direct sum. In particular, every extension has a generalized Baer cyclicity-preserving Lie ring. A pictorial description of this would be as follows. Here, each column is a coset of and each row is a coset of . The top left entry is the identity element, hence the top row corresponds to abelian group extensions and the left column corresponds to cyclicity-preserving 2-cocycles.

To avoid unnecessary duplication, *we have compressed the table as follows*: for each repeated column we have simply indicated the number of repeats in parentheses. The full table has 16 columns.
