    The main aim of this article is to discuss the relationship between Pontryagin duality and pro-objects. The basic idea arises from K. H. Hofmann's articles [7] and [8] where it is shown that the elementary abelian (Lie) groups are “dense” in the category of locally compact hausdorff abelian groups.
