We prove that in a connected group of finite Morley rank the centralizers of decent tori are connected. We then apply this result to the analysis of minimal connected simple groups of finite Morley rank. Our applications include general covering properties by Borel subgroups, the description of Weyl groups and the analysis of toral automorphisms.

    Let X be an algebraic variety over a field F. We study the functor taking a cycle module M over F to the group of unramified elements M(F(X))nr of M(F(X)). We prove that this functor is represented by a cycle module. The existence of pull-back maps on M(F(X))nr for rational maps (under a mild...

    We introduce the notions of proper and purely proper automorphisms of a universal algebra and prove a theorem about representation of a group as a group of such automorphisms. Under some conditions we find a syntactic description for the central automorphisms of finite algebras.

    Some problems that in general have a negative answer have an affirmative answer in the class of locally graded groups and a negative answer outside of this class. We present three such problems and mention three others, which possibly are of that type.

    We construct a multiplicative group structure in the class of integro-differential operators specific for a polydisk which was introduced by I. I. Bavrin. We indicate two applications of these operators to solution of functional equations.

    Let G be an almost simple algebraic group defined over Fp for some prime p. Denote by G1 the first Frobenius kernel in G and let T be a maximal torus. In this paper we study certain Jantzen type filtrations on various modules in the representation theory of G1T. We have such filtrations on the...

    In the present paper, the properties of orders of coprime automorphisms of irreducible linear groups are established and sufficient conditions for the existence of a normal Hall π-subgroup in a given π-separable irreducible complex linear group are obtained....

    We consider twisted conjugacy classes and the R-property for classical linear groups. In particular, it is stated that the general linear group GL( K) and the special linear group SL( K), where $$ n \geqslant 3 $$, possess the R-property if either K is an infinite integral domain with trivial...

    In this paper, we study the transference of some algebraic properties from the ring R to the skew Hurwitz series ring T = (HR, σ) and vice versa. We show that if char(R) = 0, σ is an automorphism of R and R is a σ-rigid ring, then: i) R is a Baer ring if and only if the ring of skew...

  • Spectra of finite linear and unitary groups. Buturlakin, A. // Algebra & Logic;Mar2008, Vol. 47 Issue 2, p91 

    The spectrum of a finite group is the set of its element orders. An arithmetic criterion determining whether a given natural number belongs to a spectrum of a given group is furnished for all finite special, projective general, and projective special linear and unitary groups.
