### Abstract

Dedicated to the memory of V.K.A.M. Gugenheim For a simplicial group K, the realization of the W-construction WK + WK of K is shown to be naturally homeomorphic to the universal bundle E]K]--t BIK of its geometric realization]Kl. The argument involves certain recursive descriptions of the W-construction and classifying bundle and relies on the facts that the realization functor carries an action of a simplicial group to a geometric action of its realization and preserves reduced cones and colimits. @ 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.

Below (G, e) will always be a CW-pair and hence an NDR, cf. e.g. the discussion in the appendix to =-=[22]-=-, and we shall deal exclusively with the lean realization BG = INGI. To reproduce a description thereof, and to introduce notation, write d for the category of finite ordered sets [q] = (0, 1,. . . q)... |

The unit interval I = =-=[0, I]-=- is a topological monoid under ordinary multiplication having 1 as its unit, and hence we can talk about an l-action X x I +X on a space X. Such an l-action is plainly a special kind of homotopy which... |
