On certain groups of functions

Received18 Oct 1979


Let C(X,G) denote the group of continuous functions from a topological space X into a topological group G with the pointwise multiplication and the compact-open topology. We show that there is a natural topology on the collection of normal subgroups Δ(X) of C(X,G) of the Mp={fC(X,G):f(p)=e} which is analogous to the hull-kernel topology on the commutative Banach algegra C(X) of all continuous real or complex-valued functions on X. We also investigate homomorphisms between groups C(X,G) and C(Y,G).
