    added to Stiefel-Whitney class briefly the definition/characterization.

    You might want to add to your references an obvious one(which I am too modest to name !) listed in the wiki

    Sorry for not having added the link earlier. I did have it at characteristic class and Pontryagin class, now I copied it over to Chern class, too.

    If you see it missing elsewhere, please just add it. As opposed to Wikipedia, on the nnLab you may be non-modest, if only it helps spread useful information.

    Yes, the nLab is our lab notebook, and we may wish to make note of where our papers are relevant to material in our notebook.

    Added reference to Stiefel-Whitney classes generating the cohomology ring of BO(n)B O(n).

    diff, v19, current

  2. Added cohomology ring of BSO(n)B S O(n) with reference.

    I have added a few more words (classifying space, ordinary cohomology, orthogonal group).

    diff, v21, current

  3. As there are currently none, I’d like to create own pages for BO(n)B O(n), BSO(n)B S O(n), BU(n)B U(n) and BSU(n)B S U(n). (I already wrote the german Wikipedia pages for BO(n)B O(n) and BU(n)B U(n) last year.) What title should I use, for example for the page of BO(n)B O(n)? Simply “BO(n)” (like for example MO), “classifying space of O(n)” or “classifying space of orthogonal group”? (Or is there a particular reason for why most about them is all in classifying space?)

    Sounds good.

    Sure, BO(n) would work as a title, the other options as redirects.
