    in order to have a good place to record the diagram:

    (q 1,q 2) (xq 1xq¯ 2) Sp(1)×Sp(1) Spin(4) Sp(1)Sp(1) SO(4) \array{ ( q_1, q_2 ) &\mapsto& (x \mapsto q_1 \cdot x \cdot \overline{q}_2) \\ Sp(1) \times Sp(1) &\overset{\simeq}{\longrightarrow}& Spin(4) \\ \big\downarrow && \big\downarrow \\ Sp(1)\cdot Sp(1) &\overset{\simeq}{\longrightarrow}& SO(4) }

    just for completeness, I added this statement:


    The integral cohomology ring of the classifying space BSO(4)B SO(4) is

    H (p 1,χ,W 3)/(2W 3) H^\bullet \big( p_1, \chi, W_3 \big) / \big( 2 W_3 \big)

    where

    Notice that the cup product of the Euler class with itself is the second Pontryagin class

    χχ=p 2, \chi \smile \chi \;=\; p_2 \,,

    which therefore, while present, does not appear as a separate generator.


    I hope I got this right that W 5W_5 does not appear.

    Yes, it seems to me that you only have W 3W_3 out of the integral SW classes, based on one of those sources I sent you.
