On the cohomology of free and twisted loop spaces (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
A natural extension of cohomology suspension to a free loop space is
constructed from the evaluation map and is shown to have a good
properties in cohomology calculation. This map is generalized to a
twisted loop space.
As an application, the cohomology of free and twisted loop space of
classifying spaces of compact Lie groups, including certain finite
Chevalley groups is calculated.
