Wed, 17/11/2010 - 14:15 - 15:15 Let G be a connected linear algebraic group over a field k. We say that G is toric-friendly if for any field extension K/k and any maximal K-torus T in G the group G(K) has only one orbit in (G/T)(K). Our main result is a classification of semisimple (and under certain assumptions on k, of connected) toric-friendly groups. This is a joint work with Zinovy Reichstein.
