Abstract

It is well-known that a finite group possesses a universal central extension if and only if it is a perfect group. Similarly, given a prime number p, we show that a finite group possesses a universal p′-central extension if and only if the p′-part of its abelianization is trivial. This question arises naturally when working with group representations over a field of characteristic p.
