In this notebook, I present duality theory (or theories) of abelian groups with some categorical and categorical topological flavour. I consider writing this notebook as a longer-term project, and its current content and presentation is "under development." In other words, all questions, comments, suggestions, and criticism is more than usually welcome. In Chapter 1, which is the only more-or-less ready part, the evaluation homomorphism A --> A^^ (of a group A into its bidual A^^) is studied…

Krein’s Theorem in the Context of Topological Abelian Groups
A topological abelian group G is said to have the quasi-convex compactness property (briefly, qcp) if the quasi-convex hull of every compact subset of G is again compact. In this paper we prove that


$k$-groups and duality
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
Fourier Analysis on Groups
In the late 1950s, many of the more refined aspects of Fourier analysis were transferred from their original settings (the unit circle, the integers, the real line) to arbitrary locally compact
Pontryagin duality for topological Abelian groups
Abstract. A topological Abelian group G is Pontryagin reflexive, or P-reflexive for short, if the natural homomorphism of G to its bidual group is a topological isomorphism. We look at the question,
Pontryagin duality for metrizable groups
Abstract. This paper deals with the validity of the Pontryagin duality theorem in the class of metrizable topological groups. We prove that completeness is a necessary condition for the Pontryagin
Open subgroups and Pontryagin duality
For an abelian topological group G, let G∧ denote the character group of G. The group G is called reflexive if the evaluation map is a topological isomorphism of G onto G∧∧, and G is called strongly
Banach-Dieudonné Theorem Revisited
Abstract We prove that in the character group of an abelian topological group, the topology associated (in a standard way) to the continuous convergence structure is the finest of all those which
Spaces of mappings on topological products with applications to homotopy theory
(K, W) = {f If E BA, f(K) C W}, for K a compact subset of A and W an open subset of B [2]1. Now let X and Y be Hausdorff spaces, and let Z be an arbitrary topological space. Let XX Y be the
