Title: Parabolic Subgroups, Borel Subgroups and Solvable Subgroups

Abstract: We will continue on the properties of Borel subgroups and Parabolic subgroups of a connected linear algebraic group G. We will also introduce the notions of variety of Borel subgroups and the unipotent radical of G and thereby define reductive groups.
