The topological Hawaiian earring group does not embed in the inverse limit of free groups

Paul Fabel

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 5 (2005) 1585–1587

arXiv: math.GN/0501482

Abstract

Endowed with natural topologies, the fundamental group of the Hawaiian earring continuously injects into the inverse limit of free groups. This note shows the injection fails to have a continuous inverse. Such a phenomenon was unexpected and appears to contradict results of another author.
