Algebraically compact group
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Equivalent characterizations of algebraic compactness:
- The reduced part of the group is Hausdorff and complete in the adic topology.
- The group is pure injective, that is, injective with respect to exact sequences where the embedding is as a pure subgroup.
Relations with other properties:
- A torsion-free group is cotorsion if and only if it is algebraically compact.
- Every injective group is algebraically compact.
- Ulm factors of cotorsion groups are algebraically compact.
