Anomalous behavior of the Hawaiian earring group

Published Online: 2005-07-27 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/jgth.2005.8.2.223


Let H be the classical Hawaiian earring, and let G be its fundamental group, the Hawaiian earring group. We show that the structure of homomorphisms from the Hawaiian earring group to finite groups behaves in anomalous ways. In particular, there are uncountably many surjective homomorphisms of the Hawaiian earring group to any finite group which cannot be represented by continuous maps.
