# The classification of 2-compact groups

@article{Andersen2008TheCO, title={The classification of 2-compact groups}, author={Kasper K. S. Andersen and Jesper Grodal}, journal={Journal of the American Mathematical Society}, year={2008}, volume={22}, pages={387-436} }

We prove that any connected 2-compact group is classified by its 2-adic root datum, and in particular the exotic 2-compact group DI(4), constructed by Dwyer-Wilkerson, is the only simple 2-compact group not arising as the 2-completion of a compact connected Lie group. Combined with our earlier work with Moller and Viruel for p odd, this establishes the full classification of p-compact groups, stating that, up to isomorphism, there is a one-to-one correspondence between connected p-compact…

The class of loop spaces of which the mod p cohomology is Noetherian is much larger than the class of p-compact groups (for which the mod p cohomology is required to be finite). It contains…

Abstract. The center of the Lie group SU(n) is isomorphic to Z n . If ddivides n, the quotient SU(n)/Z d is also a Lie group. Such groups are lo-cally isomorphic, and their Weyl groups W(SU(n)/Z d )…
