Solution Summary

A central extension problem is solved. The nontrivial central extension functions are determined.

Solution Preview

We consider G= Z_6 x A_4/Z_3 where Z_3 is a subgroup of Z_6 x A_4 which defines a 1 to 1 homomorphism map shown as a--->(a,a).
Now, we can define 1--->Z_2--->G--->A_4--->1 as a central extension if we assume that ...
