### Openness of finite index subgroups of $\mathrm{GL}_n(\prod O_v)$

Let $K$ be a global field and set $O := \prod_{v\nmid \infty} O_v$ where $v$ runs over the finite places of $K$. Equip $\mathrm{GL}_n(O) = \prod_v \mathrm{GL}_n(O_v)$ with the product of the $v$-adic ...

### $X$-points of reductive group schemes, if $X$ is a proper smooth curve over a finite field

Let $X$ be a connected proper smooth curve over a finite field (so the generic point of $X$ is the spectrum of a global field $K$), and let $G \rightarrow X$ be an affine $X$-group scheme of finite ...

### $\Gamma$-action on maximal tori in Borel-Tits

This is about section 6.2 in Borel-Tits' Groupes réductifs where they define a certain $\Gamma$-action on maximal split tori, denoted as $_\Delta \gamma$, distinct from the "usual" one. (If I am not ...

### a conjugacy question in quasi-split reductive groups

I have a somewhat technical question about conjugacy in quasi-reductive groups. Let $k$ be a field (in my main case interest, $k$ is finite), $G$ be a connected quasi-split reductive group over ...

### Do there exist pseudo-reductive (but not reductive) groups of small dimension?

I am working on questions in linear algebraic groups $k$, where $k$ is a local field of positive characteristic $p$. I would like to exclude some bad behaviour using the assumption that $p$ is ...

### Is the normalizer of a reductive subgroup reductive?

Let $G$ be a reductive algebraic group over an algebraically closed field (of characteristic zero if it matters) and $H \subset G$ a subgroup, also reductive. Is the identity component of the ...

### commuting elements in a reductive group

Does anyone know if the following holds? Conjecture: Any two commuting elements in a reductive algebraic group G over C of rank>1 lie in a proper parabolic subgroup of G. To make things easier, you ...

### homogenous bundles

Let $G$ be a reductive algebraic group over $\mathbb{C}$ and $H$ be an algebraic subgroup of $G$. We suppose that $H$ acts on some scheme $S$, where $S$ is of finite type over $\mathbb{C}$. Then I ...

### Parabolic subgroups and BN-pairs

We note $G$ a connected algebraic group, $T$ a maximal torus in $G$, $B$ a Borel subgroup containing $T$. We put also, $N=N_{G}(T)$ the normalizer of $T$ in $G$. We know that $(B,N)$ is a BN-pair of ...

### Conjugation of faces in root systems / of parabolic subgroups having same Levi in split reductive groups

If $(V,\Phi)$ is a root system of rank $n$, one knows that its Weyl group $W$ acts simply and transitively on Weyl chambers. But in general, if $d\lt n$, the action of $W$ on faces of dimension $d$ is ...

### Cartan decomposition for upper triangular matrices

Due to the comments, I have the impression that I have to be more precise. Consider $G= GL_n(F)$ for a non-Archimedean field $F$ with ring of integers $o$. Let $K= GL_n(o)$ and let $I$ the Iwahori ...

### What is a canonical set of representatives in $GL(n,F)$ for the vertices in the Bruhat Tits building?

$F$ is a non archimedean field here. To be more precise, I would actually prefer a set of representative in $B(F)$ for the discrete space $B(F) / B(o)Z(F)$? This can be phrased also as question about ...
Suppose that we have a closed embedding $G_1\hookrightarrow G_2$ of reductive groups (say over $\mathbb{Q}$), and suppose that we have a maximal parabolic sub-group $P_2\subset G_2$, and a minimal ...
