**Tannaka-Krein theorem** (in the narrow sense) is a particular Tannaka duality theorem for compact topological groups.

The original theorem is (in two independent and different formulations) stated and proved in

*A principle of duality for bicompact groups and quadratic block algebras*, Doklady AN SSSR**69**(1949), 725–728.
