We present new results regarding automatic continuity, unifying some diagonalization concepts that have been developed over the years. For example, any homomorphism from a completely metrizable topological group to Thompson's group $F$ has open kernel. A similar claim holds when $F$ is replaced with a Baumslag-Solitar group or a torsion-free word hyperbolic group. 
These are notes on the open problem session run by Priyam Patel and Nicholas Vlamis for the infinite-type surfaces group at the 2021 Nearly Carbon Neutral Geometric Topology conference organized by
Inverse limit slender groups
Classically, an abelian group G is said to be slender if every homomorphism from the countable product Z to G factors through the projection to some finite product Z. Various authors have proposed
Automatic continuity for groups whose torsion subgroups are small
Abstract We prove that a group homomorphism φ : L → G \varphi\colon L\to G from a locally compact Hausdorff group 𝐿 into a discrete group 𝐺 either is continuous, or there exists a normal open
Mapping class groups with the Rokhlin property
We classify the connected orientable 2-manifolds whose mapping class groups have a dense conjugacy class. We also show that the mapping class group of a connected orientable 2-manifold has a comeager
Automatic continuity of ℵ1-free groups
We prove that groups for which every countable subgroup is free (ℵ1-free groups) are n-slender, cm-slender, and lcH-slender. In particular, every homomorphism from a completely metrizable group to an

Abstract homomorphisms from some topological groups to acylindrically hyperbolic groups
We describe homomorphisms $\varphi:H\rightarrow G$ for which the codomain is acylindrically hyperbolic and the domain is a topological group which is either completely metrizable or locally countably


On Endomorphisms of torsion-Free hyperbolic Groups
A mixed (con jugate/non-conjugate) version of the classical Whitehead problem for tuples is solvable in torsion-free hyperbolic groups.
Torsion-free word hyperbolic groups are noncommutatively slender
This result demonstrates that random finitely presented groups in the few- relator sense of Gromov are noncommutatively slender.
Atomic Properties of the Hawaiian Earring Group for HNN Extensions
In 2011, while investigating fundamental groups of wild spaces, K.Eda [7] showed that the fundamental group of the Hawaiian earring (the Hawaiian earring group, in short) has the property that for
