On the Normalizer of a Unipotent Root Subgroup in a Chevalley Group

  • V. V. Nesterov

In the present paper, the normalizer of a unipotent short and long root subgroup in a Chevalley group over an arbitrary field is calculated in detail. Surely this result is known to specialists. However the author could not find a reference to it.
