Lie and Algebraic Johnsen Groups

  • Peter Plaumann
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASIC, volume 333)


Johnsen groups are reflection groups introduced and classified by Strambach for the category of Lie groups. In these notes Strambach’s results are reported. In addition we prove analogous results for connected affine algebraic groups over an algebraically closed field of characteristic different from 2 which have a Levi splitting.
