Title: The spectral sequence of a split extension and the cohomology
of an extraspecial group of order $p^3$ and exponent $p$
Abstract: Let $(E_r,d_r)$ be the LHS spectral sequence associated to a
split extension $1\ra H\ra G\ra G/H\ra 1$ of finite groups with
coefficients in a field $k$. We prove a version of a theorem of
Charlap and Vasquez which gives an explicit formula for $d_2$. We then
apply this to the case where $p$ is an odd prime, $k$ has
characteristic $p$, $G$ is extraspecial of order $p^3$ and exponent
$p$, and $H$ is elementary abelian of order $p^2$. We calculate the
terms of the spectral sequence in this case and prove $E_3=E_\infty$
(and if $p=3$, $E_2=E_\infty$).
