The study of topological groups is essentially the study of a fundamental mathematical structure, the group, to which the notion of limit is attached. Historically the abstractions of algebra and analysis (topology) developed independently. However, topological groups are structures in which there is a natural association of some purely algebraic and analytic concepts.
