A Jordan-Chevalley decomposition beyond algebraic groups

Submission date: 5 March 2022


A decomposition of definable groups G in o-minimal structures inspired by the Jordan-Chevalley decomposition of linear algebraic groups is presented. As a consequence, we give a description of the commutator subgroup and show that when G has definable Levi subgroups, then [G, G] is definable. Along the way, we study disconnected groups, definable p-groups and 0-groups, abstractly compact subgroups, and give a few other structure decompositions.
