Abstract: Let be a topological group with dense subgroup , and suppose that is an analytic group in a topology that is stronger than the topology that inherits from . It is known that contains a -closed abelian subgroup that completely determines the topology of . We now prove that the -closure of similarly determines the topology of . always has a left-completion in the category of topological groups, and the properties of determine whether is locally compact, analytic, metrizable, left-complete, or finite dimensional. We discuss the relationship between these results and recent work of Goto.
