SUBGROUPS OF ALGEBRAIC GROUPS CONTAINING REGULAR UNIPOTENT ELEMENTS

Abstract

Let G be a simple algebraic group over an algebraically closed field K of characteristic p with p[ges ]0. Then G contains finitely many conjugacy classes of unipotent elements. There is a unique class of unipotent elements of largest dimension – the class of regular unipotent elements; the centralizer of any such element is a unipotent group of dimension equal to the rank of G. For example, if G is the linear group SL (V) on the finite dimensional vector space V over K, then the regular unipotent elements are precisely the unipotent matrices consisting of a single Jordan block.
