Theorems
Analysis Theorems
A locally compact topological group $G$ is called almost connected if the underlying topological space of the quotient topological group $G/G_0$ (of $G$ by the connected component of the neutral element, also called the identity component) is compact.
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.
Every compact and every connected topological group is almost connected.
Also every quotient of an almost connected group is almost connected.
