### Show that $\mathrm{PSL}_2(C)$ is complex algebraic

The Nullstellensatz says that, if we have something that we know is a variety, then it is defined by all the equations that it satisfiesâ€”so let's just try to write down lots of obvious equations, and ...

### Connecting homomorphism in non-abelian cohomology

$\newcommand{\diag}{{\rm diag}}
\newcommand{\sH}{{\mathcal H}}
\newcommand{\R}{{\mathbb R}}
$No, the kernel $\ker \big[H^1(\R,\mu)\to H^1(\R,G)\big]$ does not have to be a subgroup of the abelian ...

### An explicit matrix form in the symplectic group

I think that you must mean $e$ to be the image of $\operatorname{diag}(-w, w, -w, w, \dotsc, -w, w)$, since otherwise $e$ does not lie in $\operatorname{GSp}_{2m}(K)$ when $m$ is odd and greater than $...

### An explicit matrix form

It looks like you are working with respect to the orthogonal form with matrix $\begin{pmatrix} & w_0 \\ w_0 \end{pmatrix}$, where $w_0 = \operatorname{antidiag}(1, \dotsc, 1)$. That's the one ...
