- Uniscalar p-adic Lie groups
Willis, George A.
- A totally disconnected, locally compact group G is said to be uniscalar if its scale function sG : G → N, as defined in [G. A. Willis, The structure of totally disconnected, locally compact groups is identically 1. It is known that G is uniscalar if and only if every element of G normalizes some open, compact subgroup of G. We show that every identity neighbourhood of a compactly generated, uniscalar p-adic Lie group contains an open, compact, normal subgroup. In contrast, uniscalar p-adic Lie groups which are not compactly generated need not possess open, compact, normal subgroups.
