|A Minami-Webb formula for compact Lie groups
The Minami-Webb formula expresses the classifying space of a finite
group G as the linear combination,
of -p cyclic groups (i.e., extensions of p-groups by
'-groups). The formula and its variants have proven very
useful in calculating group cohomology. We generalize the Minami-Webb
formula to compact Lie groups.
