Stratonovich–Weyl kernels are constructed for some of the coadjoint orbits of the two-dimensional extended Galilean group G(2+1). As an intermediate step, the unitary irreducible representations associated with a given group orbit are obtained by using the Kirillov–Mackey theory. Star products are defined, in the sense of Moyal, for functions on each of these orbits. The central extension of G(2+1) with parameter k is also analyzed, which results from the commutator between the generators of boosts, to conclude that it originates a sort of nonrelativistic remainder of the Thomas precession.
