## Abstract:

In this paper we consider non-abelian $1$-cohomology for groups with coefficients in other groups. We prove versions of the ‘five lemma’ arising from this situation. We go on to show that a connected unipotent algebraic group $Q$ acted on morphically by a connected algebraic group $G$ admits a filtration with successive quotients having the structure of $G$-modules. From these results we deduce extensions to results due to Cline, Parshall, Scott and van der Kallen. First, if $G$ is a connected, reductive algebraic group with Borel subgroup $B$ and $Q$ a unipotent algebraic $G$-group, we show the restriction map $H^1(G,Q)\to H^1(B,Q)$ is an isomorphism. We also show that this situation admits a notion of rational stability and generic cohomology. We use these results to obtain corollaries about complete reducibility and subgroup structure.## References
