### Simple Lie algebras: making subspaces 'very transversal'

Let $G$ be a Lie group or group of Lie type whose Lie algebra $\mathfrak{g}$ is simple. Because the Lie algebra is simple, for any proper subspace $V\subset \mathfrak{g}$,
there is a $g\in G$ such ...

### Is the subgroup generated by a conjugacy class of semisimple elements Zariski closed?

Let $k$ be an arbitrary field with $\operatorname{char}(k) \neq 2$. Let $G$ be a linear algebraic group over $k$. Let $X$ be the conjugacy class of a semisimple element $s \in G(k)$ of order 2 (or a ...

### Integral smooth model of unramified reductive groups

My question is motivated by the following observations. Let $\mathrm{T}$ be a torus defined over a $p$-adic field $K$, then by theories of tori, we have it is uniquely determined by a free $\mathbb{Z}$...

### A basic question on a base change of a homogeneous space of a linear algebraic group

I asked this basic question in MSE and got a comment "This belongs to Mathoverflow", so I ask my question here.
Let $G$ be a linear algebraic group over a field $k$, and $H\subset G$ be a $k$-...

### Haar measure of algebraic orbits

Let $G$ be a simple linear algebraic group acting on a projective variety $X$ through rational maps. Let $x_0\in X$ with stabilizer group $H$ and assume that $G/H$ in not compact and carries a $G$-...
