Welcome to AMS Open Math Notes, a repository of freely downloadable mathematical works hosted by the American Mathematical Society as a service to researchers, faculty and students. Open Math Notes includes:
Visitors are encouraged to download and use any of these materials as teaching and research aids, and to send constructive comments and suggestions to the authors.
This is a course on the general structure of linear algebraic groups over arbitrary fields, covering the standard material prior to the refined theory in the reductive case, using scheme-theoretic methods (flatness, infinitesimal criteria, etc.) at the level of a year-long course on schemes.
