Title: Pseudocompact Paratopological and Quasitopological Groups

Lecture held in Elysium.
Pseudocompactness is an interesting topological property which acquires very specific
features when applied to different algebrotopological objects. A celebrated theorem
of Comfort and Ross published in 1966 states that the Cartesian product of an arbitrary
family of pseudocompact topological groups is pseudocompact. We present a survey
of results related to the validity or failure of the Comfort-Ross’ theorem in the realm of
semitopological and paratopological groups and give some examples showing that
pseudocompactness fails to be stable when taking products of quasitopological groups.
