Abstract: It is known that every analytic group $ (L,\tau )$ contains a closed abelian subgroup $ H$ which is "decisive" in the sense that the Hausdorff topologies for $ L$ which are weaker than $ \tau $ are completely determined by their restrictions to $ H$. We show here that $ H$ must ordinarily contain the entire center of $ L$ but that the rest of $ H$ can in general be reduced. The proof involves constructing "unusual" topologies for abelian Lie groups.
