I'm not a mathematician. I've only learnt about irreducible representation of finite group, symmetric group and simple Lie group. In fact, I don't know projective representation belong to which part in mathematics (I heard some people say it needs group cohomology). I heard that projective representation of a Lie group is just the representation of its universal covering group and I always use this result but I really don't known its proof. Recently I may need to use the complex and real projective representation of finite group (especially space point group and permutation group), so if anyone could give some direct reference it would be very useful.

(1) Is there some reference of real and complex projective representation of finite group? I may only need the representation in real and complex field and don't need the representation in general field.

(2) Where can I find the proof that projective representation of a Lie group is the representation of its universal covering group?

Kleshchev, Alexander. Linear and projective representations of symmetric groups. Vol. 163. Cambridge University Press, 2005.since it focus primarily on the projective representation. But it is hard even for math people.... $\endgroup$ – Henry.L Feb 24 '17 at 23:54of finite groupslifting to representations of the covering group -- this is (53.7) in that text.
