### Is torsion submodule of a $p$-adically complete and separated $\mathbb{Z}_{p}$-module closed?

I was asking to myself the following question. Consider a $p$-adically complete and separated topological algebra $R$ over $\mathbb{Z}_{p}$. As $\mathbb{Z}_{p}$ is a domain, we know that the $\mathbb{...

### Categorical description of dense homomorphisms of topological algebras

Let $A$ and $B$ be topological associative algebras (no matter, in which sense, for example, over $\mathbb C$, with identity, and with separately continuous multiplication). Let us say that a (...

### How Universal is the Topological $\mathbb K$-algebra $C(\Omega, \mathbb K)$?

For $\Omega$ an arbitrary set the family $C(\Omega, \mathbb K)$ of all functions $\Omega \to \mathbb K$ becomes a complete topological $\mathbb K$-algebra under the topology of uniform convergence. ...

### When does topological homogeneity imply algebraic homogeneity? Pseudo-arc and Hilbert cube

Knaster's pseudo-arc and Hilbert cube are topologically homogeneous continua. The easier question is: do these spaces admit a topological group structure? (I am sure that the answer is negative). Thus ...

### Generic topology on a field

I'm wondering if there is some generic topology that can be put on any field of characteristic zero which is similar to those induced by a norm on the field. I know that for vector spaces you can take ...

### Quotient of complete topological ring

Let $G$ be a complete topological group (meaning that every Cauchy net has a unique limit), and $H\unlhd G$ a closed normal subgroup. If $G$ is first countable (equivalently, metrizable), then $G/H$ ...

### Series in topological rings that only converge if almost all summands are zero

While trying to understand a certain topological ring better, I stumbled onto the following question.
Suppose $I$ is a fixed infinite index set, $R$ is a topological ring and $(x_i)_{i\in I}$ is a ...

### Completion and Tensor Product of Algebras

Let $A$ be a commutative ring with 1, $I$ an ideal in $A$, $B$ an $A$-algebra. I am trying to prove the following isomorphism of $A$-algebras:
$$ \big( A^* \otimes _A B \big) ^* \cong B^* $$
"$^*$" ...

### Entire calculus and clmc algebras

If $\mathcal{A}$ is a complete locally convex (Hausdorff) associative unital algebra (over $\mathbb{C}$) one is interested in defining "transcendental" functions of a given algebra element $a \in \...
