### Measure algebra on the Bohr compactification vs the bidual algebras

The following question probably reduces to some standard abstract harmonic analysis Twister play, but I'd still welcome some comments on it. Let $G$ be a locally compact Abelian group and let $bG$ ...

### Duality of Hopf algebras and duality of spectra

Let $S$ be the sphere spectrum, and for $X$ a topological space, let $S(X)$ be the mapping spectrum from the free loop spectrum on $X$ to the sphere spectrum. This is an $E_\infty$ ring spectrum (also ...

### Is Serre duality related to Pontryagin duality?

I am wondering if there is some relationship between Serre duality and Pontryagin duality for compact complex manifolds. In this case Serre duality reduces to the commutativity of Hodge-star operator ...

### Pontriagin reflexivity of the character group

For an Abelian topological group $G$ by $G^{\wedge}$ we denote the Pontryagin dual of $G$, i.e. the group of continuous homomorphisms $G\to\mathbb T:=\{z\in\mathbb C:|z|=1\}$. The group $G^{\wedge}$ ...

### A possible mistake in Walter Rudin, “Fourier analysis on groups”

I have the following lemma 4.2.4 on page 80 in the book (we have locally compact abelian topological groups $G_1, G_2$ and their duals $\Gamma_1, \Gamma_2$): Suppose $E$ is a coset in $\Gamma_2$ ...

### Conceptual explanation for Poisson summation formula

The Poisson summation formula says that for a Schwartz function $f : \mathbf R^d \to \mathbf R$ and its Fourier transform $\widehat f$, we have \sum_{n \in \mathbf Z^d} f(x) = \sum_{n \in \mathbf Z^...

### Quick computation of the Pontryagin dual group of torus

I'm looking for a quick way to compute the Pontryagin dual group of the n-dimensional torus $\mathbb{T}^n$ (with $\mathbb{T} := \mathbb{R} / \mathbb{Z}$). The only way I know is from "Dikran Dikranjan ...

### Discrete-compact duality for nonabelian groups

A standard property of Pontrjagin duality is that a locally compact Hausdorff abelian group is discrete iff its dual is compact (and vice versa). In what senses, if any, is this still true for ...
