Classifying spaces for $1$–truncated compact Lie groups

Charles Rezk

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 18 (2018) 525–546
Abstract

A 1–truncated compact Lie group is any extension of a finite group by a torus. In this note we compute the homotopy types of Map(BG,BH), Map(BG,BH), and Map(EG,BG H) for compact Lie groups G and H with H 1–truncated, showing that they are computed entirely in terms of spaces of homomorphisms from G to H. These results generalize the well-known case when H is finite, and the case when H is compact abelian due to Lashof, May, and Segal.
