Extensions of topological groups

Lawrence Gerald Brown

Vol. 39 (1971), No. 1, 71–78

In this paper, we will be concerned with topological group extensions of a polonais group A by a polonais group G. When A is abelian, we will consider two cohomology groups: H2(G,A) and HV 2(G,A).H2(G,A) is based on Borel cochains and was studied by Moore. HV 2(G,A) is obtained by identifying cochains which differ only on a first category set, an idea suggested to us by D. Wigner. We will show that each of the groups classifies the extensions and that the hypothesis that A be abelian can be eliminated.
