Recall that a function is Ac-continuous if its restriction to each compact subset of its domain is continuous. We call a topological group G a Ac-group if each ¿-continuous homomorphism on G is continuous. As we will see in §1, where elementary properties of Ac-groups are studied, Ac-groups are the appropriate topological group analogue to Ac-spaces. As one would expect, they provide a useful tool for the study of dual groups topologized with the compact-open topology. In §2 we show that the… Expand

Abstract Given a topological group G we denote by G ∧ the group of characters on G and reflexivity of G means that the natural map from G to G ∧ ∧ is a topological isomorphism. We show that for any… Expand
