Rational cohomology of classifying spaces and Hilali conjecture

Abdelhadi Zaim


Let X be a simply connected space with finite-dimensional rational homotopy groups. Denote by Bau1(X) the classifying space of fibrations with fiber X and max π(X)=max {i; πi(X)≠0}. In this paper, we show that the dimensional rational cohomology and the Lusternik-Schnirelmann category of Bau1(X) are infinite if max π(X) is odd. Our results apply, in particular, when X is elliptic. As a consequence, we prove the Hilali conjecture for classifying space.
