Groups with a root group datum

Pierre-Emmanuel Caprace and Bertrand Rémy

Vol. 9 (2009), No. 1, 5–77
Abstract

Root group data provide the abstract combinatorial framework common to all groups of Lie-type and of Kac–Moody-type. These notes intend to serve as a friendly introduction to their basic theory. We also survey some recent developments.
