On Hopf Algebra Extensions Arising from Semi-Direct Products of Groups

  • Mitja Mastnak
Part of the Mathematics and Its Applications book series (MAIA, volume 555)


Hopf algebra extensions arising from a matched pair of groups were intro­duced by G.I. Kac ([Kac] ). He established an exact sequence (the Kac sequence) that connects group cohomology and Hopf algebra extensions. This was re­cently considered and generalized by other authors (for instance A. Masuoka in [Mal], [Ma2]).
