Some properties of o-bounded and strictly o-bounded groups

Constancio Hernández, D. Robbie, Mikhail Tkachenko


We continue the study of (strictly) o-bounded topological groups initiated by the first listed author and solve two problems posed earlier. It is shown here that the product of a Comfort-like topological group by a (strictly) o-bounded group is (strictly) o-bounded. Some non-trivial examples of strictly o-bounded free topological groups are given. We also show that o-boundedness is not productive, and strict o-boundedness cannot be characterized by means of second countable continuous homomorphic images.
