Linear algebraic groups are an important class of groups that come with the structure of an algebraic variety. Examples include the general linear group, the special linear group or the orthogonal group over a field. In this seminar, we will develop the foundations of the theory of linear algebraic groups. We will discuss the basic definitions, important subgroups such as tori and Borel subgroups, the relationship between a linear algebraic group and its Lie algebra, as well as the root datum of a linear algebraic group. The endpoint of the seminar will be a discussion of the classification of reductive groups.

The aim is to study Deligne’s article “Cohomology étale: le point de depart” in SGA 4 1/2 and to provide the necessary background. Participants are expected to have knowledge of a 2 semester course of Algebraic Geometry.

Time: Wednesday and Friday 11-13,  Exercises: Monday 14-16 (tentative)
