Abstract

We define and study a certain class of spaces which includes p-completed classifying spaces of compact Lie groups, classifying spaces of p-compact groups, and p completed classifying spaces of certain locally finite discrete groups. These spaces are determined by fusion and linking systems over "discrete p-toral groups" - extensions of (Z/p(infinity))(r) by finite p-groups - in the same way that classifying spaces of p-local finite groups as defined in our paper [ 7] are determined by fusion and linking systems over finite p - groups. We call these structures "p-local compact groups".
