Cohomology of classifying spaces of loop groups and finite Chevalley groups associated with spin groups

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Let q be a power of an odd prime p and Fq be the finite field with q elements. For n≥3, we prove the mod 2 cohomology of the finite Chevalley group Spinn(Fq) is isomorphic to that of the classifying space of the loop group of the spin group Spin(n).
