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