Publication# Almost cyclic regular semisimple elements in irreducible representations of simple algebraic groups

Abstract

Let G be a simple linear algebraic group defined over an algebraically closed field of characteristic p ≥ 0 and let φ be a nontrivial p-restricted irreducible representation of G. Let T be a maximal torus of G and s ∈ T . We say that s is Ad-regular if α(s) is different from β(s) for all distinct T -roots α and β of G. Our main result states that if all but one of the eigenvalues of φ(s) are of multiplicity 1 then, with a few specified exceptions, s is Ad-regular. This can be viewed as an extension of our earlier work, in which we show that, under the same hypotheses, either s is regular or G is a classical group and φ is “essentially” (a twist of) the natural representation of G.

Linear algebraic group

In mathematics, a linear algebraic group is a subgroup of the group of invertible matrices (under matrix multiplication) that is defined by polynomial equations. An example is the orthogonal group, defined by the relation where is the transpose of . Many Lie groups can be viewed as linear algebraic groups over the field of real or complex numbers. (For example, every compact Lie group can be regarded as a linear algebraic group over R (necessarily R-anisotropic and reductive), as can many noncompact groups such as the simple Lie group SL(n,R).

Algebraic group

In mathematics, an algebraic group is an algebraic variety endowed with a group structure that is compatible with its structure as an algebraic variety. Thus the study of algebraic groups belongs both to algebraic geometry and group theory. Many groups of geometric transformations are algebraic groups; for example, orthogonal groups, general linear groups, projective groups, Euclidean groups, etc. Many matrix groups are also algebraic. Other algebraic groups occur naturally in algebraic geometry, such as elliptic curves and Jacobian varieties.

Simple Lie group

In mathematics, a simple Lie group is a connected non-abelian Lie group G which does not have nontrivial connected normal subgroups. The list of simple Lie groups can be used to read off the list of simple Lie algebras and Riemannian symmetric spaces. Together with the commutative Lie group of the real numbers, , and that of the unit-magnitude complex numbers, U(1) (the unit circle), simple Lie groups give the atomic "blocks" that make up all (finite-dimensional) connected Lie groups via the operation of group extension.

Let K be an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero, and let G be a connected reductive algebraic group over K. We address the problem of classifying triples (G, H, V ), where H is a proper connected subgroup of G, and V is a finitedimensional ir ...

Let k be an algebraically closed field of arbitrary characteristic, let G be a simple simply connected linear algebraic group and let V be a rational irreducible tensor-indecomposable finite-dimensional kG-module. For an element g of G we denote by $V_{g}( ...

Ulam asked whether all Lie groups can be represented faithfully on a countable set. We establish a reduction of Ulam's problem to the case of simple Lie groups. In particular, we solve the problem for all solvable Lie groups and more generally Lie groups w ...
