On the homotopy types of $\mathrm{Sp}(n)$ gauge groups

Daisuke Kishimoto and Akira Kono

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 19 (2019) 491–502
Abstract

Let Gk,n be the gauge group of the principal Sp(n)–bundle over S4 corresponding to k π3(Sp(n)). We refine the result of Sutherland on the homotopy types of Gk,n and relate it to the order of a certain Samelson product in Sp(n). Then we classify the p–local homotopy types of Gk,n for (p 1)2 + 1 2n.

Keywords
