Nullification functors and the homotopy type of the classifying space for proper bundles

Abstract

Let G be a discrete group for which the classifying space for proper G–actions is finite-dimensional. We find a space W such that for any such G, the classifying space  B¯G for proper G–bundles has the homotopy type of the W–nullification of  BG. We use this to deduce some results concerning  B¯G and in some cases where there is a good model for  B¯G we obtain information about the  Bp–nullification of  BG.
