  • The properties of the nonabelian tensor products are interesting in different contexts of algebraic topology and group theory. We prove two theorems, dealing with the nonabelian tensor products of projective limits of finite groups. The first describes their topology. Then we show a result of embedding in the second homology group of a pro-p-group, via the notion of complete exterior centralizer. We end with some open questions, originating from these two results.

  • Using the notion of complete nonabelian exterior square $G\hat{\wedge}G$ of a pro-p-group G (p prime), we develop the theory of the exterior degree $\hat{d}(G)$ in the infinite case, focusing on its relations with the probability of commuting pairs d(G). Among the main results of this paper, we describe upper and lower bounds for $\hat{d}(G)$ with respect to d(G). Here the size of the second homology group $H_2(G,\mathbb{Z}_p)$ (over the p-adic integers $\mathbb{Z}_p$) plays a fundamental role. A further result of homological nature is placed at the end, in order to emphasize the influence of $H_2(G,\mathbb{Z}_p)$ both on G and $\hat{d}(G)$.
