This is a reprint of the original edition of L. S. Pontryagin’s classical monograph on topological groups [Continuous Groups (Russian), Gostehizdat, Moscow-Leningrad (1939)]. Although the book was written more than half a century ago, it still can be recommended as an introduction into this area. (Of course, for developments after circa 1937 one should look up a more recent monograph.)
