Anick spaces and Kac–Moody groups

Stephen Theriault and Jie Wu

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 18 (2018) 4305–4328
Abstract

For primes p 5 we prove an approximation to Cohen, Moore and Neisendorfer’s conjecture that the loops on an Anick space retracts off the double loops on a mod-p Moore space. The approximation is then used to answer a question posed by Kitchloo regarding the topology of Kac–Moody groups. We show that, for certain rank-2 Kac–Moody groups K, the based loops on K is p–locally homotopy equivalent to the product of the loops on a 3–sphere and the loops on an Anick space.
