Linear Algebraic Groups by Armand Borel

This revised, enlarged edition of Linear Algebraic Groups (1969) starts by presenting foundational material on algebraic groups, Lie algebras, transformation spaces, and quotient spaces. It then turns to solvable groups, general properties of linear algebraic groups, and Chevally’s structure theory of reductive groups over algebraically closed groundfields. It closes with a focus on rationality questions over non-algebraically closed fields.
