Discrete models for the $p$–local homotopy theory of compact Lie groups and $p$–compact groups

Carles Broto, Ran Levi and Bob Oliver

Geometry & Topology 11 (2007) 315–427
Abstract

We define and study a certain class of spaces which includes p–completed classifying spaces of compact Lie groups, classifying spaces of p–compact groups, and p–completed classifying spaces of certain locally finite discrete groups. These spaces are determined by fusion and linking systems over “discrete p–toral groups”—extensions of (p)r by finite p–groups—in the same way that classifying spaces of p–local finite groups as defined in our paper [The homotopy theory of fusion systems, J. Amer. Math. Soc. 16 (2003) 779–856] are determined by fusion and linking systems over finite p–groups. We call these structures “p–local compact groups”.
