Definition
See for instance (Hofmann-Morris, def. 4.24 ). We remark that since the identity component $G_0$ is closed, the identity in $G/G_0$ is a closed point. It follows that $G/G_0$ is $T_1$ and therefore, because it is a uniform space, $T_{3 \frac1{2}}$ (a Tychonoff space ; see uniform space for details). In particular, $G/G_0$ is compact Hausdorff.
