Resolving rational cohomological dimension via a Cantor group action

##### Abstract

By a Cantor group we mean a topological group homeomorphic to the Cantor set. We show that a compact metric space of rational cohomological dimension $n$ can be obtained as the orbit space of a Cantor group action on a metric compact space of covering dimension $n$. Moreover, the action can be assumed to be free if $n=1$.
