Topic: Universal Bundles and Classifying Spaces

Abstract: We will talk about the classifying theorem of principal
G-bundles for a topological group G. For every group G, there is a
classifying space BG so that the homotopy classes of maps from a space X
to BG are in bijective correspondence with the set of isomorphism classes
of principal G-bundles over X. We will be outlining the construction, due
to Milnor, of a classifying space for any group G.
