Shape injectivity of the earring space (Part II)

This is the sequel to Shape injectivity of the earring space (Part I) We’re on our way to proving the canonical homomorphism from the earring group to the inverse limit of free groups is injective. Part I was mostly dedicated … Continue reading

The Baer-Specker Group

One of the infinite abelian groups that is important to infinite abelian group theory and which has shown up naturally in previous posts on infinitary fundamental groups is the Baer-Specker group, often just called the Specker group. This post isn’t … Continue reading
