Generating varieties of topological groups Academic Article uri icon


  • Recently several papers on varieties of topological groups have appeared. In this note we investigate the question: if Ω is a class of topological groups, what topological groups are in the variety V(Ω) generated by Ω that is, what topological groups can be “manufactured” from Ω using repeatedly the operations of taking subgroups, quotient groups and arbitrary cartesian products? We seeka general theorem which will be useful for investigating V(Ω) for well-known classesΩ.
