On Schur multiplier and projective representations of groups

The study of projective representations has a long history starting with the pioneering work of Schur for finite groups (1904). It involves understanding the homomorphisms from a group into the projective general linear groups. Two essential ingredients to study the group’s projective representations are describing its Schur multiplier and representation group. In the first half of my talk, l shall start with a brief introduction to this topic. Then we shall discuss about the Schur multiplier of p-groups and give a characterization of non-abelian p-groups having Schur multiplier of maximum order. In the second half, we shall study the projective representations of discrete Heisenberg groups by describing its Schur multiplier and representation group. I shall finish my talk by discussing some future problems in this direction.
