For an abelian Hausdorff group G, let G* denote the character group endowed with the compact-open topology and let α G: G → G* * denote the canonical homomorphism. We show that the evaluation mapping from G*× G into the torus is continuous if and only if G* is locally compact and α G is continuous. If α G is injective and open, then the evaluation mapping is continuous if and only if G is locally compact. Several examples and counterexamples are given.
