Structure of the closure of orbits in spaces of finite-dimensional linear SL(2) representations

  • V. L. Popov


The orbital decomposition of the closure of an arbitrary orbit in the space of a finite-dimensional linear representation of the group SL(2) is described in terms of certain integervalued invariants. The basic field is algebraically closed and has zero characteristic.
