Özet : Given a locally compact group $G$, the Eberlein compactification $G^e$ is the spectrum of the uniform closure of the Fourier-Stieltjes algebra $B(G)$. It is a semitopological semigroup compactification and thus a quotient of the weakly almost periodic compactification of $G$. In this talk we aim to study the Eberlein compactification of the group $\mathbb{Z} \times \mathbb{T} \times \mathbb{T}$ equipped with Heisenberg type multiplication. First, we will see that transitivity properties of the action of $\mathbb{Z} \times \mathbb{T}$ on the central subgroup $\mathbb{T}$ force some aspects of the structure of $(\mathbb{Z} \times \mathbb{T} \times \mathbb{T})^e$ to be quite simple. On the other hand, we will observe that the Eberlein compactification of the direct product group $\mathbb{Z} \times \mathbb{T}$ is large with a complicated structure, and can be realized as a quotient of the Eberlein compactification $(\mathbb{Z} \times \mathbb{T} \times \mathbb{T})^e$.
