For nilpotent spaces p-completion is well behaved and reasonably well understood. By p–completion we mean Bousfield–Kan completion with respect to the field Fp [BK]. For non-nilpotent spaces the completion process often has a chaotic effect, this is true even for small spaces. One knows, however, that the classifying space of a compact Lie group is Fp-good even though it is usually non-nilpotent.
