We consider amalgamation properties of convergent sequences in topological groups and topological vector spaces. The main result of this paper is that, for arbitrary topological groups, Nyikos’s property ${\alpha}_{1.5}$ is equivalent to Arhangel’skiĭ’s formally stronger property α₁. This result solves a problem of Shakhmatov (2002), and its proof uses a new perturbation argument. We also prove that there is a topological space X such that the space ${C}_{p}\left(X\right)$ of continuous real-valued functions on X with the...
