abstract

  • We introduce the group-compact coarse structure on a Hausdorff topological group in the context of coarse structures on an abstract group which are compatible with the group operations. We develop asymptotic dimension theory for the group-compact coarse structure generalizing several familiar results for discrete groups. We show that the asymptotic dimension in our sense of the free topological group on a non-empty topological space that is homeomorphic to a closed subspace of a Cartesian product of metrizable spaces is 1.
