On the integral cohomology of the classifying spaces of rotation groups:

  • Edgar H. Brown, The Cohomology of BSO nB SO_n and BO nBO_n with Integer Coefficients, Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society Vol. 85, No. 2 (Jun., 1982), pp. 283-288 (jstor:2044298)

On rational homotopy theory, the fundamental theorem of dg-algebraic rational homotopy theory and its generalization both to Borel-equivariant rational homotopy theory (for covering spaces of non-nilpotent spaces) and to real homotopy theory (using continuous real cohomology and topological dgc-algebras):

based on (including discussion of globally Kan fibrant topological simplicial groups):
