Odd primary homotopy decompositions of gauge groups

Stephen D Theriault

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 10 (2010) 535–564
Abstract

We construct p–local decompositions of certain gauge groups when p is an odd prime. Specifically, we decompose SU(n), Sp(n) and Spin(n)–gauge groups over simply connected 4–manifolds and U(n)–gauge groups over compact, orientable Riemann surfaces, given certain restrictions on n that depend on p.

Keywords
