Generators for locally compact groups Academic Article uri icon


  • It is proved that if G is any compact connected Hausdorff group with weight w(G)≦c, ℝ is the topological group of all real numbers and n is a positive integer, then the topological group G × ℝn can be topologically generated by n + 1 elements, and no fewer elements will suffice.
