If you have a question about this talk, please contact Christopher Brookes. Pseudo-reductive groups are smooth connected linear algebraic groups over a field k whose k-defined unipotent radical is trivial. If k is perfect then all pseudo-reductive groups are reductive, but if k is imperfect (hence of characteristic p) then one gets a strictly larger collection of groups. They come up in a number of natural situations, not least when one wishes to say something about the simple representations of all smooth connected linear algebraic groups. Recent work by Conrad-Gabber-Prasad has made it possible to reduce the classification of the simple representations of pseudo-reductive groups to the split reductive case. I’ll explain how. This is joint work with Mike Bate and Ben Martin.
