On the group structure and root system of SLn over a field

  • H Praise Adeyemo


Given a commutative field F, the Whitehead functor K1 and Steinberge functor K2 are closely related to the theory of general linear group through exact sequences of groups. In this paper, the group structure of SLn over a field F is closely examined and its root system is computed. Only the case n = 3 is considered.
