Abstract: The Steenrod algebra structures of ${H^\ast }(BG;Z/p)$ for compact Lie groups are studied. Using these, Brown-Peterson cohomology and Morava $K$-theory are computed for many concrete cases. All these cases have properties similar as torsion free Lie groups or finite groups, e.g., $B{P^{odd}}(BG) = 0$.
