Homework Help: Fundamental Group of Quotient Space

  1. Dec 12, 2011 #1

    I don't know how to attack the following question, any hints would be appreciated:

    If G is a simply connected topological group and H is a discrete subgroup, then [itex]\pi_1(G/H, 1) \cong H [/itex].

    Thank you

    Do you know how to find the fundamental group of [itex]S^1[/itex] (using covering spaces). Can you adjust the proof a little bit such that it holds in this case??
