Abstract: Given a reductive group $ \mathbf {G}$ over a base scheme $ S$, Brylinski and Deligne studied the central extensions of a reductive group $ \mathbf {G}$ by $ \mathbf {K}_2$, viewing both as sheaves of groups on the big Zariski site over $ S$. Their work classified these extensions by three invariants, for $ S$ the spectrum of a field. We expand upon their work to study ``integral models'' of such central extensions, obtaining similar results for $ S$ the spectrum of a sufficiently nice ring, e.g., a DVR with finite residue field or a DVR containing a field. Milder results are obtained for $ S$ the spectrum of a Dedekind domain, often conditional on Gersten's conjecture.
