## Theorem

Let $\struct{S, \tau_{_S}}$ be a topological space.

Let $\struct{G, *, \tau_{_G}}$ be a topological group.

Let $\lambda \in G$.

Let $f : \struct{S, \tau_{_S}} \to \struct{G, \tau_{_G}}$ be a continuous mapping.

Let $\lambda * f : S \to G$ be the mapping defined by:

- $\forall x \in S: \map {\paren{\lambda * f}} x = \lambda * \map f x$

Let $f * \lambda : S \to G$ be the mapping defined by:

- $\forall x \in S: \map {\paren{f * \lambda}} x = \map f x * \lambda$

Then:

- $\lambda * f : \struct{S, \tau_{_S}} \to \struct{G, \tau_{_G}}$ is a continuous mapping
- $f * \lambda : \struct{S, \tau_{_S}} \to \struct{G, \tau_{_G}}$ is a continuous mapping.

## Proof

By definition, a topological group is a topological semigroup.

Hence $\struct{G, *, \tau_{_G}}$ is a topological semigroup.

From Multiple Rule for Continuous Mappings to Topological Semigroup, $\lambda * f, f * \lambda : \struct{S, \tau_{_S}} \to \struct{G, \tau_{_G}}$ are continuous mappings.
