Introduction to Topological Groups

Introduction to Topological Groups
by Dikran Dikranjan

Publisher: UCM 2007
Number of pages: 69

Description:
These notes provide a brief introduction to topological groups with a special emphasis on Pontryaginvan Kampen's duality theorem for locally compact abelian groups. We give a completely self-contained elementary proof of the theorem. According to the classical tradition, the structure theory of the locally compact abelian groups is built parallelly.
