### 1-Cocycle of an Algebra

Is there a good definition of a 1-Cocycle of an algebra A that is relatively easy to understand? I am rather new to cohomology and representation theory, but it seems like this is a fundamental ...

### Are homomorphisms into PGL related to the Schur multiplier?

I've been trying to understand homomorphisms from a finite group $G$ into $\operatorname{PGL}(n,R)$ for $n$ a positive integer, and $R$ a commutative ring with 1, usually a field. I had been under ...

### First group cohomology and composition factors

Let $G$ be a finite group. Let $k$ be a field ($\text{char}(k)=p>0$). Let $P(k)$ be the projective cover of $k$. Assume that for any nontrivial simple $kG$-module $M$ we have $H^1(G,M)=0$. Does it ...

### Finite groups such that $H^1(G,M)=0$ for any simple $G$-module $M$

I'm trying to understand for which finite groups $G$ the augmentation ideal of $\mathbb{F}_2G$ is generated by a single element over $\mathbb{F}_2G$. I'm reading a paper with a result that implies ...

### What does the group ring $\mathbb{Z}[G]$ of a finite group know about $G$?

The group algebra $k[G]$ of a finite group $G$ over a field $k$ knows little about $G$ most of the time; if $k$ has characteristic prime to $|G|$ and contains every $|G|^{th}$ root of unity, then ...

### modern treatment of the triviality of the multiplicator of the finite special linear group

Given your favorite version of the Heisenberg group one can prove the Stone-Von Neumann theorem. It is then not to hard to construct a family of representations on a central extension of \$Sp\left(2n, ...
