Density character of subgroups of topological groups

**Authors:**Leiderman, Arkady , Morris, Sidney , Tkachenko, Mikhail**Date:**2017**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Transactions of the American Mathematical Society Vol. 369, no. 8 (2017), p. 5645-5664**Full Text:****Reviewed:****Description:**We give a complete characterization of subgroups of separable topological groups. Then we show that the following conditions are equivalent for an omega-narrow topological group G: (i) G is homeomorphic to a subspace of a separable regular space; (ii) G is topologically isomorphic to a subgroup of a separable topological group; (iii) G is topologically isomorphic to a closed subgroup of a separable path-connected, locally path-connected topological group. A pro-Lie group is a projective limit of finite-dimensional Lie groups. We prove here that an almost connected pro-Lie group is separable if and only if its weight is not greater than the cardinality c of the continuum. It is deduced from this that an almost connected pro-Lie group is separable if and only if it is homeomorphic to a subspace of a separable Hausdorff space. It is also proved that a locally compact (even feathered) topological group G which is a subgroup of a separable Hausdorff topological group is separable, but the conclusion is false if it is assumed only that G is homeomorphic to a subspace of a separable Tychonoff space. We show that every precompact (abelian) topological group of weight less than or equal to c is topologically isomorphic to a closed subgroup of a separable pseudocompact (abelian) group of weight c. This result implies that there is a wealth of closed non-separable subgroups of separable pseudocompact groups. An example is also presented under the Continuum Hypothesis of a separable countably compact abelian group which contains a non-separable closed subgroup.

While for many natural spaces X such an embedding exists, our main result shows that if X is a Cook continuum or X is a rigid Bernstein set, then A(X ⊕ X) does not embed into A(X) as a topological subgroup. The analogous statement is true for the free boolean group B (X).**Description:**We consider the following question: for which metrizable separable spaces X does the free abelian topological group A (X

Embeddings of free topological vector spaces

**Authors:**Leiderman, Arkady , Morris, Sidney**Date:**2020**Type:**Text , Journal article , Article**Relation:**Bulletin of the Australian Mathematical Society Vol. 101, no. 2 (2020), p. 311-324**Full Text:**false**Reviewed:****Description:**It is proved that the free topological vector space contains an isomorphic copy of the free topological vector space for every finite-dimensional cube , thereby answering an open question in the literature. We show that this result cannot be extended from the closed unit interval to general metrisable spaces. Indeed, we prove that the free topological vector space does not even have a vector subspace isomorphic as a topological vector space to , where is a Cook continuum, which is a one-dimensional compact metric space. This is also shown to be the case for a rigid Bernstein set, which is a zero-dimensional subspace of the real line. © 2019 Australian Mathematical Publishing Association Inc..

Using a result of S.A. Saxon, we show that for a separable locally convex space (lcs) E, the product space has a nonseparable closed vector subspace if and only if E does not have the weak topology. On the other hand, we prove that every metrizable vector subspace of the product of any number of separable Hausdorff lcs is separable. We show however that for the classical Michael line the space of all continuous real-valued functions on endowed with the pointwise convergence topology, contains a nonseparable closed vector subspace while is separable.**Description:**In 1983 P.

Separability of topological groups : A survey with open problems

- Leiderman, Arkady, Morris, Sidney

**Authors:**Leiderman, Arkady , Morris, Sidney**Date:**2018**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Axioms Vol. 8, no. 1 (2018), p. 1-18**Full Text:****Reviewed:****Description:**Separability is one of the basic topological properties. Most classical topological groups and Banach spaces are separable; as examples we mention compact metric groups, matrix groups, connected (finite-dimensional) Lie groups; and the Banach spaces C(K) for metrizable compact spaces K; and ℓ p , for p ≥ 1. This survey focuses on the wealth of results that have appeared in recent years about separable topological groups. In this paper, the property of separability of topological groups is examined in the context of taking subgroups, finite or infinite products, and quotient homomorphisms. The open problem of Banach and Mazur, known as the Separable Quotient Problem for Banach spaces, asks whether every Banach space has a quotient space which is a separable Banach space. This paper records substantial results on the analogous problem for topological groups. Twenty open problems are included in the survey. © 2018 by the authors.

The separable quotient problem for topological groups

- Leiderman, Arkady, Morris, Sidney, Tkachenko, Mikhail

**Authors:**Leiderman, Arkady , Morris, Sidney , Tkachenko, Mikhail**Date:**2019**Type:**Text , Journal article , Article**Relation:**Israel Journal of Mathematics Vol. 234, no. 1 (Oct 2019), p. 331-369**Full Text:**false**Reviewed:****Description:**The famous Banach-Mazur problem, which asks if every infinite-dimensional Banach space has an infinite-dimensional separable quotient Banach space, has remained unsolved for 85 years, though it has been answered in the affirmative for reflexive Banach spaces and even Banach spaces which are duals. The analogous problem for locally convex spaces has been answered in the negative, but has been shown to be true for large classes of locally convex spaces including all non-normable Frechet spaces. For a topological group G there are four natural analogous problems: Does G have a separable quotient group which is (i) non-trivial; (ii) infinite; (iii) metrizable; (iv) infinite metrizable. Positive answers to all four questions are proved for groups G which belong to the important classes of (a) all compact groups; (b) all locally compact abelian groups; (c) all sigma-compact locally compact groups; (d) all abelian pro-Lie groups; (e) all sigma-compact pro-Lie groups; (f) all pseudocompact groups. However, a surprising example of an uncountable precompact group G is produced which has no non-trivial separable quotient group other than the trivial group. Indeed G(tau) has the same property, for every cardinal number tau >= 1.

Varieties of abelian topological groups with coproducts

- Gabriyelyan, Saak, Leiderman, Arkady, Morris, Sidney

**Authors:**Gabriyelyan, Saak , Leiderman, Arkady , Morris, Sidney**Date:**2015**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Algebra Universalis Vol. 74, no. 3-4 (2015), p. 241-251**Full Text:**false**Reviewed:****Description:**Varieties of groups, introduced in the 1930s by Garret Birkhoff and B.H. Neumann, are defined as classes of groups satisfying certain laws or equivalently as classes of groups closed under the formation of subgroups, quotient groups, and arbitrary cartesian products. In the 1960s the third author introduced varieties of topological groups as classes of (not necessarily Hausdorff) topological groups closed under subgroups, quotient groups and cartesian products with the Tychonoff topology. While there is only a countable number of varieties of abelian groups, there is a proper class of varieties of abelian topological groups. We observe that while every variety of abelian groups is closed under abelian coproducts, varieties of abelian topological groups are in general not closed under abelian coproducts with the coproduct topology. So this paper studies varieties of abelian topological groups which are also closed under abelian coproducts with the coproduct topology. Noting that the variety of all abelian groups is singly generated, that is, it is the smallest variety containing some particular group, but that the variety of all abelian topological groups is not singly generated, it is proved here that the variety of all abelian topological groups with coproducts is indeed singly generated. There is much literature describing varieties of topological groups generated by various classical topological groups, and the study of varieties with coproducts generated by particular classical topological groups is begun here. Some nice results are obtained about those varieties of abelian topological groups with coproducts which are also closed with regard to forming Pontryagin dual groups. © 2015, Springer Basel.
