# Degree 3 Cohomological Invariants of Groups that are Neither Simply Connected nor Adjoint

@article{Bermudez2013Degree3C, title={Degree 3 Cohomological Invariants of Groups that are Neither Simply Connected nor Adjoint}, author={Hernando Bermudez and Anthony Michael Ruozzi}, journal={arXiv: Group Theory}, year={2013} }

In a recent paper A. Merkurjev constructed an exact sequence which includes as one of the terms the group of degree 3 normalized cohomological invariants of a semisimple algebraic group G, greatly extending results of M. Rost for simply connected quasi-simple groups. Furthermore, in the aforementioned paper, Merkurjev uses his exact sequence to determine the groups of invariants for all semisimple adjoint groups of inner type. The goal of this paper is to use Merkurjev's sequence to compute the…
