The Bogomolov Multiplier of Finite Simple Groups

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The subgroup of the Schur multiplier of a finite group G consisting of all cohomology classes whose restriction to any abelian subgroup of G is zero is called the Bogomolov multiplier of G. We prove that if G is quasisimple or almost simple, its Bogomolov multiplier is trivial except for the case of certain covers of PSL(3, 4).
