### Why are Schur multipliers of finite simple groups so small?

Given a finite simple group $G$, we can consider the quasisimple extensions $\tilde G$ of $G$, that is to say central extensions which remain perfect. Some basic group cohomology (based on the ...

### How hard (P, NP, NP-hard) is it to compute Schur norms of matrices (as multipliers)?

Given a matrix $A\in M_n(\mathbb{C})$, I will denote by $||A||_\infty$ the operator norm of $A$, as seen acting on the Hilbert space $\mathbb{C}^n$. This makes $M_n(\mathbb{C})$ into a Banach space (...

### Schur multipliers over non-algebraically closed ground fields?

Recently some arithmetic dynamicists came to town, bringing with them some interesting problems in arithmetic geometry. I started thinking a bit about one of their problems, and it got me wondering ...

### What is the Schur multiplier of the affine linear group AGL(n,q)?

What is the Schur multiplier of the $n$-dimensional affine linear group $\mathrm{AGL}(n,q)$ over the Galois field with $q$ elements? I am particularly interested in the simple case $n=1$. Computation ...

### Is the Tensor/Exterior square $G\otimes G$ or $G\wedge G$ of infinite p-group also a p-group?

Let $G$ be an infinite countable p-group. Is it true that $G\otimes G$ or $G\wedge G$ are also p-groups? (where G acts on itself by conjugation). For simplicity, you can consider that $G=[G,G]$, and ...

### When is the restriction map $res:H^2(G,U(1))\to H^2(Z_p\times Z_p,U(1))$ not the zero map?

Consider $G$ to be a finite group with non-trivial Schur Multipler $H^2(G,U(1))$, where $G$ acts trivially on the circle group $U(1)$. By Example of a Schur-nontrivial group with no abelian subgroup ...

### Two questions on the Schur multiplier of groups of order $p^4$

I tried to find a reference for the computation of the Schur multiplier of groups of order $p^4$. The case in which $p=2$ is well known, see e.g. Table 1 at http://pages.bangor.ac.uk/~mas010/pdffiles/...

### Example of a Schur-nontrivial group with no abelian subgroup of the form $H\times H$?

A group $G$ is Schur-nontrivial if the Schur multipler $H^2(G,U(1))$ is not the trivial group. I am trying to find an example of a Schur-nontrivial group which does not contain a subgroup of the form ...
This question is based on a question when is the restriction $H^2(G,\mathbb{C}^*)\to H^2(K,\mathbb{C}^*)$ surjective? I am asking this as a new question as I already asked that user but got no ...
### A question about multiplier algebra of $C_0(G)\otimes C_b(G)$ for a locally compact group $G$
Let $G$ be locally compact group. How we can show that $$M(C_0(G)\otimes C_b(G))=C_b(G,C_b(G)).$$ ($M(C_0(G)\otimes C_b(G))$ is the multiplier algebra of $C_0(G)\otimes C_b(G)$)
