Abstract: Let $ K$ be a connected compact Lie group, and $ G$ its complexification. The homology of the based loop group $ \Omega K$ with integer coefficients is naturally a $ \mathbb{Z}$-Hopf algebra. After possibly inverting $ 2$ or $ 3$, we identify $ H_*(\Omega K,\mathbb{Z})$ with the Hopf algebra of algebraic functions on $ B^\vee_e$, where $ B^\vee$ is a Borel subgroup of the Langlands dual group scheme $ G^\vee$ of $ G$ and $ B^\vee_e$ is the centralizer in $ B^\vee$ of a regular nilpotent element $ e\in\operatorname{Lie} B^\vee$. We also give a similar interpretation for the equivariant homology of $ \Omega K$ under the maximal torus action.
