Abstract: We first describe Krull-Schmidt theorems decomposing $ H$ spaces and simply-connected co-$ H$ spaces into atomic factors in the category of pointed nilpotent $ p$-complete spaces of finite type. We use this to construct a 1-1 correspondence between homotopy types of atomic $ H$ spaces and homotopy types of atomic co-$ H$ spaces, and construct a split fibration which connects them and illuminates the decomposition. Various properties of these constructions are analyzed.
