The Pontryagin duality theorem for locally compact abelian groups (briefly, LCA groups) has been the starting point for many different routes of research in Mathematics. From its appearance there was a big interest to extend it in a context broader than LCA groups. Kaplan in the 40ʼs proposed—and it still remains open—the problem of characterization of all abelian topological groups for which the canonical mapping into its bidual is a topological isomorphism, assuming that the dual and the… Expand

The present paper deals with the existence of nondiscrete reflexive topologies on abelian groups of finite exponent, which turns out to be linked with the cardinality of the corresponding group. We… Expand

On refinements of ω-bounded group topologies

- Mathematics

Abstract A topological group is ω -bounded if the closure of any countable subset is compact. Clearly, the ω -bounded groups are countably compact and hence, precompact. It has been pointed out… Expand
