|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 cyclic p'-groups). The formula and its variants have proven very useful in calculating group cohomology. We generalize the Minami-Webb formula to compact Lie groups.
