Toric-friendly groups

Mikhail Borovoi and Zinovy Reichstein

Vol. 5 (2011), No. 3, 361–378
Abstract

Let G be a connected linear algebraic group over a field k. We say that G is toric-friendly if for any field extension Kk and any maximal K-torus T in G the group G(K) acts transitively on (GT)(K). Our main result is a classification of semisimple (and under certain assumptions on k, of connected) toric-friendly groups.
