Seminar Abstract:

This talk is aimed at mathematicians who are not experts in topological group theory but have at least a passing acquaintance with topology. Compactness is the most important topological property - it is regarded as the topological version of finiteness. Topological groups are both groups and topological spaces where the group operations of multiplication and inversion are continuous. Compact groups are a very important class of topological groups. The aim of this talk is to describe what compact groups look like as topological spaces.
