Abstract: Is every algebraic action of a reductive algebraic group $ G$ on affine space $ {{\mathbf{C}}^n}$ equivalent to a linear action? The "normal linearization theorem" proved below implies that, if each closed orbit of $ G$ is a fixed point, then $ {{\mathbf{C}}^n}$ is $ G$-equivariantly isomorphic to $ {({{\mathbf{C}}^n})^G} \times {{\mathbf{C}}^m}$ for some linear action of $ G$ on $ {{\mathbf{C}}^m}$.
