The classification of 2compact groups
(2009) In Journal of the American Mathematical Society 22(2). p.387436 Abstract
 We prove that any connected 2compact group is classified by its
2adic root datum, and in particular the exotic 2compact group
DI(4), constructed by DwyerWilkerson, is the only simple 2compact group not arising as the 2completion of a compact connected Lie group. Combined with our earlier work with Møller and Viruel for p odd, this establishes the full classification of pcompact groups, stating that, up to isomorphism, there is a onetoone correspondence between connected pcompact groups and root data over the padic integers. As a consequence we prove the maximal torus conjecture, giving a onetoone correspondence between compact Lie groups and finite loop spaces admitting a maximal torus. Our proof is a general...
