Description

On the second cohomology of semidirect products Manfred Hartl and Sebastien Leroy June 20, 2007 LAMAV, ISTV2, Universite de Valenciennes et du Hainaut-Cambresis, Le Mont Houy, 59313 Valenciennes Cedex 9, France.

Abstract Let G be a group which is the semidirect product of a normal sub- group N and a subgroup T , and let M be a G-module with not neces- sarily trivial G-action. Then we embed the simultaneous restriction map res = (resGN , res G T ) t : H2(G,M) ? H2(N,M)T ?H2(T,M) into a natural five term exact sequence consisting of one and two-dimensional cohomology groups of the factors N and T . The elements of H2(G,M) are represented in terms of group extensions of G by M constructed from extensions of N and T . Introduction. The low dimensional cohomology groups Hn(G,M), n ≤ 2, of a group G with coefficients in a G-module M crucially occur in many fields, in algebra as well as in geometry. In fact, they reflect the structure of G (and of M if the G-action on it is non trivial) in a subtle way which is far from being understood in general.

Abstract Let G be a group which is the semidirect product of a normal sub-group N and a subgroup T , and let M be a G -module with not neces-sarily trivial G -action. Then we embed the simultaneous restriction map res = ( res GN , res TG ) t : H 2 ( G, M ) H 2 ( N, M ) T × H 2 ( T , M ) into a natural five term exact sequence consisting of one and two-dimensional cohomology groups of the factors N and T . The elements of H 2 ( G, M ) are represented in terms of group extensions of G by M constructed from extensions of N and T .
Introduction. The low dimensional cohomology groups H n ( G M ) , n 2 , of a group G with coefficients in a G -module M crucially occur in many fields, in algebra as well as in geometry. In fact, they reflect the structure of G (and of M if the G -action on it is non trivial) in a subtle way which is far from being understood in general. If G admits a proper normal subgroup N it can be viewed as an extension 1 N G Q 1 (1) and one wishes to express the cohomology of G in terms of the cohomology of the simpler “pieces” N and Q . Formally, the Lyndon-Hochschild-Serre spectral sequence (referred to as LHSSS in the sequel) H p ( Q H n p ( N M )) H n ( G M ) solves this problem, computing certain filtration quotients of H n ( G M ) provided one can manage to compute the corresponding differentials; those concerning
