Differentials of Functions with Arguments and Values in Topological Abelian Groups

Michal, A. D.


By a topological abelian group T (t.a.g. T) we shall mean an abstract abelian group-written additively-such that (a) the function x + y and the inverse function -x are continuous functions (neighborhood continuity) of both variables x and y and of the variable x, respectively, with respect to a postulated Hausdorff topology; (b) given any y ε T and any Hausdorff neighborhood U of 0 ε T, there exists a "positive integer" n such that y ε nU. In this note we shall give brief indications of a differential calculus for functions f(x) with x e t.a.g. T_1 and values in a t.a.g. T_2. Proofs and further developments will appear elsewhere.
