**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.

**Intelligent Perception**

Differential forms provide a modern view of calculus. They also give you a start with algebraic topology in the sense that one can extract topological information about a manifold from its space of differential forms. It is called cohomology.
