# Second cohomology group for trivial group action of S5 on Z2

From Groupprops

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 symmetric group:S5 on cyclic group:Z2. The elements of this classify the group extensions with cyclic group:Z2 in the center and symmetric group:S5 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 Klein four-group.

## Description of the group

This article describes the second cohomology group for trivial group action:

where is symmetric group:S5 (the symmetric group of degree five) and is cyclic group:Z2. Note that has order 120 and has order 2, so all the corresponding extensions have order .

The cohomology group itself is isomorphic to the Klein four-group.

## Computation of the group

The group can be computed using group cohomology of symmetric group:S5#Cohomology groups for trivial group action. As per this, we have:

For cyclic of order two, both and are cyclic of order two.

## Elements

Note that in *all* cases, the base of the group extension (isomorphic to cyclic group:Z2) equals the center of the group extension and hence is a characteristic subgroup.
