The central product of the dihedral group of order eight and cyclic group of order four is a central product of these groups, over a common central subgroup of order two.

It is given by the presentation:

.

Here, is the dihedral group of order eight and is the cyclic group of order four.

Here is a quick description of all the subgroups of this group:

- The trivial subgroup. Isomorphic to trivial group. (1)
- The subgroup . This is the unique normal subgroup of order two, and is contained in the center. Isomorphic to cyclic group:Z2. (1)
- The subgroups , , , . These come in two conjugacy classes of 2-subnormal subgroups, one comprising and and the other comprising and . However, they are all automorphic subgroups. Isomorphic to cyclic group:Z2. (4)
- The subgroups and . These form a single conjugacy class of 2-subnormal subgroups. Isomorphic to cyclic group:Z2. (2)
- The subgroup of order four. This is the center. Isomorphic to cyclic group:Z4. (1)
- The subgroups , and . These are normal subgroups but are automorphic subgroups: they are related by outer automorphisms. Isomorphic to cyclic group:Z4. (3)
- The subgroup , and . These are all normal subgroups but are related by outer automorphisms. Isomorphic to Klein four-group. (3)
- The subgroup . This is an isomorph-free subgroup of order eight, containing the three non-characteristic cyclic subgroups of order four. Isomorphic to quaternion group. (3)
- The subgroups , and . These are all normal and related by outer automorphisms. Isomorphic to direct product of Z4 and Z2. (3)
- The subgroups , and . These are all normal and are related by outer automorphisms. Isomorphic to dihedral group:D8. (3)
- The whole group. Isomorphic to central product of D8 and Z4. (1)
