Spatial realization of a Lie algebra and the Bar construction

Yves Félix and Daniel Tanré

We prove that the spatial realization of a rational complete Lie algebra L, concentrated in degree 0, is isomorphic to the simplicial bar construction on the group, obtained from the Baker-Campbell-Hausdorff product on L.

Keywords: rational homotopy theory, realization of Lie algebras, Lie models of simplicial sets, simplicial bar construction
