Topologies on finite groups Academic Article uri icon


  • It has been shown by D. Stephen that the number N of open sets in a non-discrete topology on a finite set with n elements is not greater than 3 × 2n-2.We show that for admissable topologies on a finite group N ≦ 2n/r, where r is the least order of its non-trivial normal subgroups. This is clearly a sharper bound.
