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 α_1.5 is equivalent to Arhangel’skı’s formally stronger property α_1. 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(X) of continuous real-valued functions on X, with the topology of pointwise convergence, has Arhangel’skı’s property α_1
but is not countably tight. This result follows from results of Arhangel’ski ̆ı–Pytkeev, Moore and Todorcevic, and provides a new solution, with stronger properties than the earlier solution, of a problem of Averbukh and Smolyanov (1968) concerning topological vector spaces.
