By Gunter Malle

Originating from a summer season institution taught by means of the authors, this concise therapy comprises a few of the major leads to the realm. An introductory bankruptcy describes the basic effects on linear algebraic teams, culminating within the class of semisimple teams. the second one bankruptcy introduces extra really good themes within the subgroup constitution of semisimple teams, and describes the category of the maximal subgroups of the easy algebraic teams. The authors then systematically enhance the subgroup constitution of finite teams of Lie variety due to the structural effects on algebraic teams. This strategy may help scholars to appreciate the connection among those periods of teams. The booklet covers many subject matters which are primary to the topic, yet lacking from current textbooks. The authors supply various instructive routines and examples should you are studying the topic in addition to extra complex themes for examine scholars operating in comparable components.

6 is connected. Let G be connected solvable, S ≤ G a torus. Then CG (S) 5 G-spaces and quotients One aspect of the theory of linear algebraic groups which has been missing up to now is that of a quotient group. We need to first see how to give the structure of variety to a quotient and it will become clear that we cannot limit ourselves to affine varieties. Thus, we begin by recalling some basic aspects of the general theory of varieties and morphisms. 1 Actions of algebraic groups In group theory, it is often helpful to consider actions of groups, for example the action of a group on itself by conjugation.

We will argue by induction on n. The only unipotent element of GL1 is the identity, so the claim is clear for n = 1. Now suppose that n > 1. If there exists a G-invariant proper subspace 0 = W < V , then by choosing an appropriate basis we may assume ∗ ∗ . that G ≤ 0 ∗ The G-invariance of W induces natural homomorphisms ϕ : G → GL(W ) and Φ : G → GL(V /W ). 2 Unipotent groups 19 dim(V ), by induction we get (up to a change of basis, so up to conjugation) ⎧⎛ ⎞⎫ ⎪ ⎪ 1. ∗ ⎪ ⎪ ⎪ ∗ ⎟⎪ ⎪ ⎪⎜ . ⎨ ⎜ 0 1 ⎟⎬ ⎟ = Un G≤ ⎜ ⎜ ⎪ ⎪ 1.

If, on the other hand, G acts irreducibly on V , then the elements of G generate the full endomorphism algebra End(V ) by Burnside’s double centralizer theorem [39, Thm. 16]. Let g ∈ G. Since any element of G, being unipotent, has trace n we find tr((g − 1)h) = tr(gh) − tr(h) = 0 for all h ∈ G. Therefore, tr((g − 1)x) = 0 for all x ∈ End(V ). Choosing for x matrices with only one non-zero entry one easily sees that this is only possible if g − 1 = 0, that is g = 1 and so G = 1, contradicting the irreducibility of G on V .
