Title: Semisimple groups of rank one

Speaker: Shripad Garge, IIT Bombay

Abstract: After having proved that the Weyl group of a connected linear algebraic group is generated by reflections, we now study the semisimple groups of rank one. The main theorem here is that such a group is either SL_2 or PSL_2.
