Linearizing certain reductive group actions

H. Bass, W. Haboush

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Is every algebraic action of a reductive algebraic group G on affine space Cn equivalent to a linear action? The “normal linearization theorem” proved below implies that, if each closed orbit of G is a fixed point, then Cn is G-equivariantly isomorphic to (Cn)G X Cm for some linear action of G on Cm.
