Let \(p\) be a fixed prime number. Let \(G\) denote a finite \(p\)-perfect group. This book looks at the homotopy type of the \(p\)-completed classifying space \(BG_p\), where \(G\) is a finite \(p\)-perfect group. The author constructs an algebraic analog of the Quillen's "plus" construction for differential graded coalgebras. This construction is used to show that given a finite \(p\)-perfect group \(G\), the loop spaces \(BG_p\) admits integral homology exponents. Levi gives examples to show that in some cases our bound is best possible. It is shown that in general \(B\ast _p\) admits infinitely many non-trivial \(k\)-invariants. The author presents examples where homotopy exponents exist. Classical constructions in stable homotopy theory are used to show that the stable homotopy groups of these loop spaces also have exponents.
