The Tubby Torus as a Quotient Group Academic Article uri icon


  • Let E be any metrizable nuclear locally convex space and E ^ the Pontryagin dual group of E. Then the topological group E ^ has the tubby torus (that is, the countably infinite product of copies of the circle group) as a quotient group if and only if E does not have the weak topology. This extends results in the literature related to the Banach–Mazur separable quotient problem.
