Reductive Algebraic Groups

A reductive group is a type of linear algebraic group over a field. One example of a reductive group is the general linear group GL(n) of invertible matrices.

The course covers:

  • Classification of reductive groups over algebraically closed fields using root data.
  • Geometric construction of representations by the Borel-weil theorem.
