**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.
